Fire Baked Cinnamon Buns

Having a tasty breakfast is always a great way to start the day when out camping.

I’ll do bacon and eggs, oatmeal, even cold cereal – but to top it off, these fire baked cinnamon buns are a really great way to finish off your breakfast before packing up your camp site and heading out on your day’s adventures.

All you need is a can of the pre-made Pillsbury cinnamon buns, enough oranges for everyone and some aluminum foil wrap.

Begin by cutting off the top of the oranges scoop out the insides into a bowl or cup.

Places the uncooked cinnamon bun inside the orange shell and replace the top section of the orange.

Wrap everything up in the aluminum foil.

Place the foil wrapped oranges into your fire. You’ll want to experiment with timing, but 8-12 minutes seems to work for me – depending on the intensity of the fire. In the photo above, my cinnamon buns were cooked to perfection in 10 minutes.

While cooking on the fire, sit down, enjoy a cup of hot tea and eat the insides of the orange you scraped out.

Remove from the fire, open up and add a touch of the icing, let melt and enjoy!

You can get a couple or even three uses out of each orange peel, so go ahead and enjoy seconds!
