Summer Outdoors Recipe: Orange Campfire Cinnamon Rolls!


We tried this recipe at a recent camping trip at Cold Creek in Yacolt. The result is a fun food activity that’s easy to prepare and when fully cooked, the rolls have a flavor of smoked orange. It’s delicious!

Two Cooking Methods

Cooking Method #1: On Pan Over Coals

  1. Cut four oranges in half, and scoop out fruit (eat for breakfast with your cinnamon rolls).
  2. Put one Pillsbury Orange Cinnamon Rolls in each of the orange halves (cinnamon side up).
  3. Put orange halves on old baking pan on grill over campfire. Cover loosely with foil.
  4. Bake until they rise and look done (keep checking on them).
  5. Cool a few minutes, then top with icing.

Cooking Method #2: Directly On Coals

  • Cut the tops off of four oranges (save tops), then hollow out the oranges.
  • Stick one cinnamon roll in each orange and put the cap back on.
  • Put the oranges in heavy duty foil and wrap up the bundle fashioning a handle at the top.
  • Rest them in the coals of your campfire, and bake them for about 12 minutes.
  • Cool, then take the caps off and drizzle with icing.
