This recipe serves as a muffin or bread recipe, and it calls for a few fresh oranges, or today, it was clementines. Since I’m a huge fan of clementines, as is the rest of the clan here, as soon as they appear in markets, I buy about two bags of them a week. They disappear rather quickly – about three a day for each of us, but they can be stored in the fridge to last a while longer if you find you have too many.
I love my valencia orange cake recipe, but I don’t always have the time to boil oranges for 2 hours – which is where this recipe comes in. It’s not a substitute, but it has enough sweet citrus flavor to satisfy a bit of the craving.
