Orange breakfast scones with orange glaze are definitely for the sweet treat lover. And the icing is homemade powdered sugar.
I used to order an orange-glazed orange scone I at a Barnes and Noble cafe in the Midwest.

The interesting thing was, though, the Barnes and Noble Cafes down South didn’t offer the same orange scone, only orange-cranberry. After several years went by, I finally decided to make my own. This orange scone recipe is made with a sugar alternative.

Zest With or Without a Zester
Zest, used in my recipe, gives the orange scone – well, zest. Did you ever wonder how to add it correctly to a recipe? Check out Gabrielle Taylor’s article at Wonder How To Food Hacks on using zest without a zester tool.
This is a zester:

The one above and below seem similar and look more like the one I have.
Gotta add some zest to desserts as well as our lives for a brighter perspective – and to enhance our palettes.
Don’t have a zester? Add one to your kitchen utensil collection.
This next one looks quite fancy…
A vegetable peeler works great, too, and is what I’ve used.
Orange Scone Recipe
Now here’s the yummy and ooey-gooey orange-glazed scone recipe (the kind you eat with a fork).
Orange Scone with Orange Glaze
A yummy ooey-gooey orange glazed orange scone recipe
- 3 cups Packaged Biscuit Mix
- 2 Tbsp Truvia
- 1 Tbsp Orange, cut into small pieces
- 3/4 Cup 2% Organic Milk
- 1 Tbsp Orange Zest
- 1 cup Truvia
- 3 Tbsp Frozen Orange Juice (thawed)
- 1 Tbsp Orange Zest
Preheat oven to 425°.
Combine the biscuit mix and sugar substitute in a bowl and mix well.
Stir in the orange pieces and milk to make a soft dough.
Drop by heaping tablespoons (Patting lightly with a little flour if too sticky) into a muffin pan.
Bake for 12 minutes.
Take the muffin pan out and spoon the glaze on top of each muffin.
Place muffins back into the oven and bake for 12 more minutes, checking every 3-4 minutes to be sure they don’t start burning.
Check your scones every 3-4 minutes during the second baking time as your oven may vary from mine - and so that they don’t burn. On the other hand, you may want to bake your scones a little longer than the recipe says to so that they have a harder texture.
You may prefer to use regular sugar rather than Truvia.
The cost of the recipe is not much more than $1-$2 if you usually keep the ingredients on hand as I do.
This orange scone recipe is adapted from my Easy Raisin Breakfast Scone recipe. However, the orange one is done a little differently than the raisin scone. It’s because the raisin scones are made without a glaze, unlike the orange scone.
Go enjoy the day. See you back on the KSH blog soon.
