Cake in an Orange

Author Notes:

Believed to be popular with boy scouts, it is simply cake in an orange (peels)!
I am not the first in the world to think of this idea as I believed. See:


Serves: 1


  • 1 orange peel (thick-skinned)
  • 2 slices of orange
  • 1/2 cup store bought cake mix
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese (optional)
In This Recipe


  1. Halve the orange. Scoop out the inners.
  2. Mix 2 slices of orange and cream cheese to the prepared cake mix (of any desired flavor, preferably chocolate/vanilla/lemon) inside a bowl.
  3. Pre-heat oven to temperature 50 degrees lower than instructed by store bought cake mix box requires.
  4. After 20 minutes of baking, remove from oven.
  5. Eat cake out of an orange!
