Orange Blossoms

Baking Buddies - that works over here also!! - I can remember my mom making these things - and with going home for Christmas and everything I was getting all nostalgic - so I got an hankerin' for some.  I think there are quite a few variations for these and I used probably the simplest of recipes.  Very easy and super with a cuppa!!

Orange Blossoms


1 Package yellow Cake mix
1 3.4 oz Package Instant Lemon Pudding Mix
4 Eggs, room temperature
3/4 C Cold Water
3/4 C Oil

3 C Icing Sugar
1/2 C Frozen Orange Juice Concentrate, Thawed
3 Tbls Melted Butter
3 Tbls Water

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Grease one or two miniature muffin pans.  For the cakes, in a mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, water and oil... beat until well mixed.  

Fill prepared muffin pans, using about 1 tablespoon of batter for each cake.  Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until cakes spring bake when touched.  Repeat until all batter is used up.  I made 5 1/2 dozen of these suckers.

For the glaze, mix the icing sugar, orange juice, butter and water until very smooth: set aside.

Dip the "Blossoms" into the glaze immediately after removing them from the oven.  Place on waxed paper to set and cool.


  1. These look wonderful!! Need to see if I have everything to make them right now!!
