Blueberry Muffins in an Orange
This recipe is so fun and simple for all ages. And you get to make a muffin in an orange! Really, who doesn’t want to try that? Plus,
the hint of orange takes these blueberry muffins to the
next level.
Here’s what you need:
• Blueberry muffin mix (or any flavor muffin mix) and the ingredients listed on the box (likely eggs, milk, water, oil)
• Oranges (at least 1 per person)
• Aluminum foil
• Bowl
Here’s what you do:
Stir up the blueberry muffin mix. Next, cut the oranges in half and scoop out all the flesh (and save for another time). Take the orange shells and fill one empty half with blueberry muffin mix. Then take the other half and put the orange back together. Once you’ve wrapped them in foil, just toss these balls in the fire. Muffins will “steam” inside the orange peel and the orange peel will insulate the muffin from the fire. Keep turning the aluminum balls over and over in the fire, every minute or so. It usually takes about 10 minutes, but go ahead and pull them out and check them once in awhile until they are firm in the middle. Then unwrap and eat with a spoon - yum!
