Cinnamon Rolls Baked In Oranges – A perfect easy recipe for campfire or grill. The oranges keep the cinnamon rolls extra moist. All you need is only 2 ingredients: refrigerated cinnamon rolls and oranges! So good! Quick and easy recipe. Video recipe. |

Hiya folks! So summer is almost here and that means grilling and campfires! If you want a new dessert to make outdoors, then look no further than these cinnamon rolls baked in oranges…

It’s a simple, 3-ingredient idea. The cinnamon rolls get infused with orange essence while they bake for an ultra-moist, melt-in-your-mouth dessert!

They’re easy to make. Start by slicing off the tops of some large oranges and scooping out the insides of the orange with a spoon. Keep the insides because you can make some freshly squeezed orange juice to go along with.

Insert the cinnamon roll into the orange, replace the top of the orange and wrap in foil.

Now it’s ready to go into a campfire, barbecue or oven to bake. They take about 25-30 minutes to cook through, although if your grill is particularly hot you should reduce the time.
