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
-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
-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!

Yield: 1 cup


orange sugar on table
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 1 orange
  • 1 cup granulated sugar


  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.
  2. Stir together the zest and sugar and store in an airtight container.


Approximate cost/serving: This only came out to about 40 cents for one cup of flavored sugar!

Vegetarian/gluten free: yes to both, vegan too.
