Orange Flavored Sugar Recipe

orange-flavored-sugar-recipe

It doesn’t get much easier than this friends.  A little sugar, a little orange zest, a little jar.  It all comes together to make a sweet gift for the holidays that’s always appreciated.  You can give it in small bottles like the picture, with a tag recommending what to sprinkle it on:
-pancakes or French toast
-shortbread or sugar cookies
-cheesecake
-chocolate pudding

Or you can use a larger jar with baking recommendations to substitute it for plain sugar in:
-pound cake, bundt cake or coffee cake
-struesel toppings
-cookies
-banana bread

The orange sugar is a little clumpier than the other flavored sugars because of the moisture in the orange peels.  But it works great and you can sift it for baking if necessary.

I have two more flavored sugar recipes coming up this week so stay tuned!

  1. Use a microplane grater or the fine side of a grater to zest the orange, this means only grating the aromatic orange part of the peel, not the bitter white pith.
