  • Summary

    This recipe was inspired by a whole orange cake recipe from Sunset magazine. It uses whole oranges that have been processed to an almost purée to give the cake a little marmalade-like flavor. As soon as I saw the original recipe I knew I wanted to play with it by adding some spice. I tried several versions using the Sunset recipe as the base, adding spice to the batter, but was never quite happy with the flavor or the texture. I switched tactics and used a Cook's Illustrated sour cream coffee cake with streusel filling as the base. I substituted puréed orange for the sour cream, and increased the butter to account for the lost fat. The first version was quite good, and just needed a tiny bit of tinkering with the streusel. To gild the lily, I topped the cake with an orange-vanilla powdered sugar glaze.
