MAKE IT: Campfire Orange Blueberry Muffins

campfire orange blueberry muffins

Muffins cooked in oranges – whomever originally came up with this idea deserves a medal! This versatile recipe can be made with any muffin mix, allowing you to tailor it to your preferences.


  • 6 oranges
  • 2 (7 oz.) packages blueberry muffin mix (any muffin mix will work!), plus oil, milk, or whatever additional ingredients are specified on the box


  1. Cut oranges in half, and scoop out the orange segments, reserving the hollow peel shells.
  1. Prepare the muffin mix according to the package directions, and fill the orange peel cups half full of batter.
  1. Wrap each one loosely with heavy-duty aluminum foil.
  2. Place in hot coals, making sure that the batter side stays up, and cook 6-10 minutes, or until muffins are done. Serve with scooped out orange segments!
  1. Note: Use 3 oranges per package of muffin mix.
