    Orange Bavarois

    Based on my ‘Basic Bavarois’ recipe, you can make a variety of Bavarois in different flavours. Today I replaced Milk with Orange Juice and made this delicious dessert. Topping is optional, but I strongly recommend to add some fresh Orange segments. Today I mixed the Orange segments with a little Sugar and Grand Marnier, but …

    Orange Jelly

    The other day I happened to see a recipe of Orange Jelly. I was very surprised to find the recipe required an unthinkable amount of Gelatine Powder. I became curious to compare other people’s Orange Jelly recipes. Some recipes require a lot of Sugar, and some recipes are complicated. To me, Jelly is simple to …

    Orange Marmalade Cupcakes

    My husband’s Auntie Joan kindly gives us her homemade Marmalade every year. We don’t eat Marmalade, but Joan’s Marmalade is perfect for making cakes, such as ‘Orange Marmalade & Whisky Pound Cake’. Today I made these cupcakes. Thanks to Joan’s Scottish Marmalade that was slightly bitter, the cupcakes were delicious. Makes 12 Cupcakes Ingredients 125g …

    Sugar Coated Citrus Peel Cookies

    I bought a bag of Mixed Peel for Christmas baking, and there was leftover, as always. I often make scones and cupcakes to use it up. Today I made these cookies. Basically I just added some Mixed Peel to my ‘Easiest Sweet Shortcrust Pastry’, but I replaced a part of Flour with Almond Meal. I …

    Orange ‘Mlyntsi’

    Ukraine’s thin Pancakes are called ‘Mlyntsi’. Similar to France’s Crepes, ‘Mlyntsi’ can be sweet or savoury. I have my own ‘Mlyntsi’ recipe. Today I used Orange Juice instead of Milk, because I wanted to eat ‘Mlyntsi’ with ‘Orange Curd’ that I made a few days ago. The result was fantastic. I want to share how …

    Orange Curd

    Lemon Curd is easy to make, so is Orange Curd. You can make Orange Curd in the similar way as Lemon Curd, but you need to add Sugar cautiously because Orange Juice can be quite sweet. I usually don’t add Corn Starch to Lemon Curd, but for Orange Curd, it helps to stabilise the texture. …

    Orange Pound Cake

    This is another variation of my Pound Cake. I added Zest and Juice of 1 fresh Orange. It can be baked in a round cake tin, but it always cracks. It is better to bake it in a loaf tin, so that the centre crack actually looks good. I drizzled with Orange Icing for the …

    Layered Orange & Cream Jelly

    This is not my invention. The person who first made this dessert probably did it by accident. This jelly naturally separates into two layers. I assume the acid in Orange Juice does the magic. Other sour fruit juices such as Apple juice OR Pineapple juice should work as well. You might be interested in experimenting …

    Rice Cooker Orange Upside-down Cake

    The other day, I baked Orange Upside Down Cake. The top of the cake was nicely browned but the most important bottom was not browned. I was very disappointed, but I instantly thought about cooking it in the rice cooker. All my Upside-down Cakes can be superbly cooked in the rice cooker, because the bottom …

    Orange Marmalade & Whisky Pound Cake

    At Christmas time every year, my husband’s Auntie Joan kindly gives us her homemade Marmalade. We don’t eat it much, but her Marmalade is perfect for this cake. This cake is only for grown-ups because it is alcoholic as I added Whisky to the batter and brushed with extra Whisky on top. I believe Whisky …

    Date Scones

    Dates and Walnuts are a great combination. Many people use these two ingredients to make cakes and cookies. I strongly believe Dates and Orange are another great combination. I added Zest of 1 Orange to these Scones, but you can add chopped Candied Orange Peels. Today I enjoy this Scone with Butter and Orange Marmalade …

    Candied Orange Peel

    Recently I made several cakes that required Candied Orange Peel. Then I discovered that no shop sells it where I live. I used Mixed Citrus Peel that is widely available. My family members regularly eat Oranges and throw away the peel. So, I decided to make Candied Orange Peel today. It is much easier than …
