We’ve teamed up with California Citrus Growers to pull back the peel and share all the citrus-y wonders of oranges from the Golden State. Here, we’re showing you how to use beautiful Cara Cara oranges (they're in season till May!) in the kitchen and beyond. And psst: Did you know that just one Cara Cara orange gives you 100% of the daily recommended amount of Vitamin C? Pretty sweet.


California Cara Cara oranges always make their way into our citrus bowl when they’re in season, which is roughly from December until May. Underneath their unassuming orange skin is the most gorgeous pink fruit you’ve ever seen (it inspired us to paint the bathroom in our new apartment the same color—I'm not kidding).

Orange Scones

Tender scones infused with orange zest and finished with a sweet orange glaze.

Topped with a sweet orange glaze, Orange Scones are sweet, tangy, and tender. They are the best breakfast or afternoon snack with a cup of tea.

I am so over winter right now. And let me tell you, it’s not helping matters that it’s supposed to be 4°F here on Sunday.

Every single winter I ask myself why we continue to live in the Midwest. Sure, changing seasons are great, but I could really do without the freezing cold temps after Christmas.

I mean, it snowed here in early May last year and I think we went over 20 days without sunshine.

Since the weather is less than amazing, I thought I’d brighten your day and mine with these sweet and tangy orange scones.

They’re simple to make and absolutely delicious for breakfast with a cup of tea.

Man, if there’s anything to celebrate in 2020, it’s that it’s over. And what better way to celebrate than with a good cocktail?

We wanted to take a deep dive and individually test each ingredient in a classic Old Fashioned to really come up with that cocktail bar-worthy beverage. Good news: We think we’ve done it.

What is an Old Fashioned?

In simple terms, an Old Fashioned is a cocktail made of bourbon, sugar, bitters, orange, and a cherry.

I don’t know what it is about this year, but I am so far behind with holiday shopping right now. I was really ahead, but then I kind of just gave up. And if I’m being honest, just the thought of entering a mall right now gives me anxiety, so I’m thinking it’s going to be the year of the gift cards for quite a few people on my list.

One thing I’m not behind with is holiday baking. In fact, today I’m planning on making peanut butter blossoms and mint chocolate cookies with my girl today.

We may even whip up a couple of batches of snowflake sugar cookies because they are current favorite cookie recipe at the moment.

After sharing my one hour orange cinnamon rolls, I don’t think I need to ramble on about how much we love the orange cinnamon combo for breakfast in this house. And I warned you that I had one more easy orange cinnamon recipe coming up. Easier than the orange rolls, I swear!

This is such a nostalgic flavor for me, and when it comes to baked goods on christmas morning, this is exactly how I want them taste.

orange cinnamon coffee cake muffins

So if cinnamon rolls are a little out of your wheelhouse, grab a muffin pan and make this recipe! You can bake them the night before and christmas morning will taste heavenly.

These last a few days (unless everyone eats them!) and they’re a great way to prepare a fun, seasonal breakfast or snack ahead of time, without trying to do so in the rush of the holiday mornings. I love doing this. Get’s everything out of the way.

orange cinnamon coffee cake muffins with orange glaze

A few years ago, I offered a holiday entertaining guide with The Pretty Dish. If you have it, you may recognize these muffins as my Christmas Morning Muffins! This is pretty much that recipe, with added streusel and glaze, because who doesn’t love coffee cake?

While the muffin itself doesn’t have a cinnamon swirl, it does have this fabulous coffee cake-like topping that lends itself to the perfect morning treat. Grab a large (iced for me!) latte with lots of foam. Turn on the glow of the christmas lights. Enjoy a slow and steady morning as the year winds down.

Sounds amazing.

It feels like we might be inside a hallmark movie at this point and I don’t hate it.

These muffins are light and fluffy with hints of both cinnamon and orange. The streusel is crumbly and almost crunchy – it’s perfect! 

The glaze is perfectly sweet and super orange-flavored, mostly from fresh grated zest that gives it a wonderful citrus zing.

Ingredients

muffins

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated orange zest

streusel

  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

orange glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest

Instructions

muffins

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with liners.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and baking soda.
  • In a larger bowl, whisk together the sugar and the eggs until combined. Whisk in the milk and vegetable oil. Whisk in the vanilla extract.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet, mixing until just combined. Fill the muffin liners about ⅔ of the way full. Sprinkle the crumb on top of the batter, pressing gently so it sticks to the batter.
  • Bake the muffins for 18 to 20 minutes, or until the center is set and the crumb is golden. Remove the muffins and drizzle with the orange glaze. Serve!

streusel

  • To make the crumb topping, whisk together the sugar, cinnamon, salt and melted butter until combined. Whisk for a good minute or two until the sugar begins to dissolve, then use a wooden spoon to stir in the flour. The mixture will be crumb-like and dry. Almost like a sludge or sand. This is what you want! Sprinkle the crumb on top of each muffin before baking.

orange glaze

  • Whisk ingredients together until a smooth glaze forms. If it’s too thick, add more orange juice 1 teaspoon at a time. If it’s too thin, whisk in more sugar a few tablespoons at a time until desired consistency is reached.
