Golden Orange Loaves

A beautiful pairing of nutty Kamut and zesty orange. A great breakfast muffin and fabulous bottom layer for fresh berries and whipped cream or ice cream!

Dry mix

Wet mix

  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ stick (4 tbsp) butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1½ cups plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 large orange, juice and zest


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F, use convection if you have it; lightly grease muffin or loaf pans
  2. Wet mix: in a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs, add remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth
  3. Final batter: combine dry and wet mixes, folding gently until no dry spots remain. Do not over mix. Do NOT beat smooth.
  4. Fill muffin cups close to top, sprinkle with sanding sugar and garnish with apple slices if desired
  5. Bake 18-20 minutes, or until the tops JUST spring back. Do not over bake or muffins will be tough
  6. For loaves, divide into two 5 x 9 loaf pans or one 9 inch cake pan and bake at 375°F for 25-35 min
  7. Remove from oven, set in pans for 5-10 minutes, then remove to cooling rack

Makes 12-16 muffins or 2 medium loaves
