Too Many Oranges!

A friend brought me a huge box of naval oranges -- his tree went a little crazy this year. Because the oranges are home grown, I freeze the zest. I am eating oranges everyday and sharing them with friends. I would like to bake something that uses orange zest and orange juice. Does anyone have a good recipe for orange cake? Or ... maybe I should try orange bars? Has anyone made them? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!!

Do a search for Orange in the baking section and you will have more recipes than you can shake a stick at. Also, subbing orange for lemon in any recipe is a nice change up. Look here for one that you might like.

I wish I lived near you and I could help you with your problem, auntieshelly. The orange pound cake recipe babe mentioned is very yummy - I made it. But it uses orange jello in addition to orange juice - not sure you are interested in buying orange anything right now.

Okay. I'm not quite sure how to post links. But Miss. Alix, (Alix) posted a recipe for lemon squares here a little while ago. I think they would be awesome as orange squares instead. If anyone knows what I'm talking about and had the know-how to post a link...

Edit: There you go Emz.

Juice them and freeze-----reserve some of them to use a zester on and freeze that as well. I add orange zest to many of my cookies, breads, and cakes. Wish I had your problem!!!

Don't forget Crepe Suzettes, Duck a la orange, marmalade, orange segments in a salad, orange sorbet, use slices inside of a whole fish, baste a chicken with the juice, make orange glace slices, fruit salad, glaze a ham with orange juice and stud with cloves (and don't forget to decorate with orange slices!), instead of lemon butter - use oranges, use it as the acid in your favourite salad dressing, cut in half and sprinkle sugar on top for a refreshing breakfast starter, look out a liqueur recipe (and make your own version of Cointreau!!) and the list goes on!!!

Tyler Florence has a lemon cupcake recipe with a cream cheese frosting. I've made them many times. You could easily swap the lemon for orange.

Here's the link. I just make regular sized cupcakes.

You could make orange curd. I've never had any, but have seen it.
