Orange Cranberry Breakfast Cake

Orange Cranberry Breakfast Cake

I’m always looking for breakfast baked good recipes and I recently discovered breakfast cakes! They look similar to coffee cakes but minus the crumb toppings.  If you do a search on breakfast cakes, there are a ton of recipes out there.  Sweet, savory or a bit of both —I had no idea! So I decided to make one with oranges since I had so many in my fruit basket.  The turbinado sugar topping and the firm texture of this cake tasted just like a scone.  And it paired so beautifully with my morning coffee.  If you enjoy a scone-like baked good, you’ll love this breakfast cake!

Cranraisin Eggnog Muffins

Cranraisin Eggnog Muffins

Earlier this week, I was invited to participate in the Baking with Spirit challenge hosted by Janine at Cake of the Week.  The month of December is all about baking something Christmas related.  And what could be more Christmas related than eggnog? Since I’ve been obsessed baking with eggnog lately, I thought it would be a fun challenge to take part in.

These Cranraisin Eggnog Muffins are rich and delicious.  The crumb topping, the boozy cranberries and raisins are the best part, in my opinion.  Nothing better than biting into those plump, juicy cranraisins soaked with brandy.  Then you have the sugary, crunchy, sweet topping giving this muffin a really
lovely texture.

So bake yourself some of these muffins on Christmas morning and be sure to visit Cake of the Week for some delectable homemade baked goodness.
