Easy Orange Coffee Cake
 
 
Serves: serves 8
Ingredients
  • 1 can (16.3 ounces) biscuits (I used Pillsbury Grands)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest
  • ¼ cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)
for the frosting:
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9-inch round cake pan or pie plate with nonstick spray.
  2. Open the can of biscuits and place one biscuit in the center of the pan. Cut the remaining 7 biscuits in half, and arrange the 14 pieces around the center biscuit, making sure the cut pieces are facing the same direction. Brush the tops of the biscuits with the melted butter.
  3. Combine sugar, orange zest and nuts (if using) in a small bowl and sprinkle over the buttered biscuits. Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until the tops of the biscuits are golden brown.
for the frosting:
  1. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar and orange juice together until smooth. If the frosting is too thick, add a bit more orange juice. Drizzle frosting over the cake and serve.
