Orange coffee Cake with Cinnamon Pecan Streusel

Postby Indaswamp » Sun Mar 02, 2014 8:49 pm

I finally tweeked this recipe to my liking. and it's a good one!

Streusel topping
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 TBSP. softened butter or margarine
1 TBSP. all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 cup (2 oz.) coarsely chopped pecans (1/8" pieces) can substitute walnuts

In a small bowl, mix sugar, flour, and cinnamon. add softened butter and mix with a fork into a crumble. add choppedpecans and mix. set aside.

Muffins:
1 1/2 cups sifted flour
2 1/2 tsps. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup melted butter or margarine
finely grated orange peel from 1 orange (about 3 1/2 tsps.)
juice from 1 orange
~1/4 cup of milk
1/2 tsp. almond extract

Preheat oven to 375*
In a mixing bowl, grate the orange peel from 1 orange. You want all the oil and juice as you grate. Take care to only grate the dark orange part of the orange peel.

in a small sauce pan, juice the orange and place over medium heat. Reduce to 1/2 volume. While orange juice is simmering, make a water bath and float a small bowl on the ice. When juice is concentrated, pour into bowl on ice bath, scraping the pot clean with a rubber spatula. stir the juice in the bowl a few times to cool. when cool, place in frig, until needed.

In a separate 2qt. mixing bowl, sift flour, baking powder, and salt. mix well

In the bowl with the orange peel, crack 1 egg and beat well with whisk attachment on blender. add sugar and butter, blend until frothy-about 2 minutes, scraping the sides down to absorb all the orange oil. Pour conc. orange juice into a 1/2 cup measure, then top off with milk. Pour into egg mixture along with 1/2 tsp. almond extract. Blend well.

Pour flour mixture into egg mixture and beat with rubber spatula until smooth. pour into 12 cavity muffin pan lined with paper cups, about 2 TBSPS per cup. Top with 1 TBSP. of streusel topping dividing the topping evenly among the 12 cups, then lightly press topping into cake batter to set it in place. Bake 20 minutes.

literally takes all of about 40 minutes to make. And yes-they are AWESOME! See those three empty spots? I ate those tonight one after another.... :lol3:

You can put it in an 8x8 or 9x9 square pan if you don't want muffins, just bake an extra 5~7 minutes.

Also, you can double the streusel if you like. Another variation is to put 1/2 the batter in the cups or pan, sprinkle 1/2 of the double batch of streusel, then the rest of the batter, followed by the rest of the streusel.

I like it as muffins because I can eat them on the road easier in the morning with a cup of joe... :thumbsup:

also, a flat type grater works much better for this than the old bell type graters for the orange peel....just remember to grate it finely.
