Why I love to bake with Oranges
Out of all the delicious Citrus fruits we get in Autumn and Winter, one of my favourite one to bake with is Orange. I love its delicious sweet yet slightly tangy taste that brings so much flavour to desserts.
It is also a super versatile fruit that can be used whole, with its juice only and/or its zest. Why just buy them to juice them when you can try so many different Baked or Fresh Orange Dessert instead!?
From this fancy French Orange Tart to these Mini Orange Tartlets, easy Almond Orange Cake, delicious Orange Poppy Seed Muffins, or gorgeous Blood Orange Upside Down Cake, there are so many delicious ways to use orange fruit.
It is a fruit that works so deliciously with Spices like Cardamom, Cinnamon or Star Anise. And is just as delicious combined with Chocolate or other Winter Fruits like Pears or Cranberries!
I have compiled these sweet recipes to make with oranges into 5 categories:
- Small Cakes & Sweet Treats
- Chocolate and Orange Desserts
And when it comes to oranges, you don't have to stick with the classic Navel or Valentia. Get creative with other varieties of oranges like Blood Oranges, Tangerines or Mandarines! They all have distinctive flavours and colours to play with.
