Kitchen | Orange Cake with Coconut Streusel

baking
So one thing this pregnancy has done for me is to re-inspire my baking efforts. I have always had a love for baking but in recent years I have done less and less of it and when my eldest son was diagnosed with severe food allergies my desire to bake grew even less and less.
But as we became more aware of his allergies and substitution options that didn’t hinder the outcome I have slowly got back into the kitchen.
So when a sweets craving hit and I had some oranges that needed to be used in the fridge I turned to the one place I go to for inspiration; Pinterest. So along my searching I stumbled across Tiffany at Creme de la Crumb and her amazing Orange Muffins with Coconut Streusel and apart from it being a nice and easy recipe to make it has been a huge hit with the hubby, the boys and little pineapple.
So I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do and if you are looking for more delicious treats I highly recommend popping over and checking out Creme de la Crumb.
