I got a bag full of cuties (oranges) from Kimi the other day. There were so many of them that I didn’t know if we were going to consume them in a timely manner. We’re not fruit people. Plus, they weren’t all that sweet (more of a reason why we’re not fruit people) so I decided to bake with them. Luckily they’re small so I used four of them in this recipe. That’s half the bag, whew! I hate waste. Now I just need to figure out what to do with the other half of the cuties. If you like orange and pecans, this will be a new favorite.
Chris and I were supposed to host a Super Bowl shindig today but he’s got the flu and has been bedridden since Tuesday. We had to cancel at the last minute so there goes my turkey chili recipe I was going to post. Instead, I was thinking about how it has been a while since I last baked so here’s a little sweet treat. Go Niners!
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!
