Tis the season for ORANGES!
Love a nice, juicy and sweet orange. There are an abundant of oranges this time of year and you'll come to find blood oranges are easier to find in the month of February, getting closer in time for Spring. Blood oranges are slightly reddish in color on the inside of the orange, they are super juicy and sweet. One of my absolute faves.
My dad has been getting oranges delivered to him at his work by some of his clients and he brings them home to us! We're always juicing oranges and eating them with tajin (chile lime seasoning).
I decided to make a delicious loaf cake with these oranges and my mom told me this time, "Just blend half an orange in the blender and add it to the batter."
It's all pureed, the skin and all!
I thought that was a crazy idea. Normally I'd zest and juice the orange and add it to the batter. Nonetheless, I did what she said, and it makes such a difference! In addition, add zest of one full orange.
Your house will sure be smelling like fresh orange citrus and it's so delicious!
