Friday - Orange Crush

Happy Friday. It is Orange Crush day at Apron Senorita. A co-worker gave me an orange yesterday. It was tasty and healthy snack. The color was so vibrant. Only God could make such perfection!

"God also said: "See, I give you every seed-bearing plant all over the earth and every tree that has seed-bearing fruit on it to be your food...". Genesis 1:29
.


I'm excited to introduce my Orange Sunshine Apron. The jumbo orange rick-rack is gorgeous and highlights the fiesta embellishment. The colors are vibrant and the fabric is durable for practical cooking use. I added a contrasting pom-pom in bright blue turquoise.

Paula Deen's Orange Coffee Cake

Ingredients
2 tablespoons butter, melted, plus more for pan
1 can refrigerated biscuits (Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers)
1/4 cup minced walnuts
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons orange zest
Glaze
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
2 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons orange juice, or more as necessary
Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9-inch round cake pan. Separate the biscuit dough into 8 biscuits. Place 1 biscuit in the center of the pan. Cut the remaining biscuits in half, forming 14 half-circles. Arrange the pieces around the center biscuit. Brush melted butter over the tops of the biscuits. In a small bowl, combine the walnuts, granulated sugar, and orange zest. Mix well and sprinkle over biscuits. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine confectioners' sugar, cream cheese, and orange juice. Blend until smooth adding more orange juice, if needed, to thin. Drizzle glaze over the warm coffee cake and serve.


Have a great weekend!

  20. Very cute; I love the pompoms. I've been tempted to use them in a few projects, but I've always balked because I don't know how they wash. Do they hold up well?
