Last week I made banana chocolate chip muffins by my own recipe and they didn’t turn out the way I wanted them. Alex faked that he liked him and then left 4 more in the tub to throw away! They were much too dense and not as flavorful as I desired. I was stuck on it mentally and needed to redeem myself! I daydreamed about banana bread texture, but with another fruit. I chose citrus! I then wanted to add some color to an otherwise brown, boring loaf. So, I decided to naturally dye the powdered sugar with blood orange juice. I am so happy with the taste, texture and vibrant color! I called it a pound cake on Insta, but I take that back. It is too moist for that. It really is like a yummy orange cake loaf.. Alex ate 3 slices already today if that helps!
