As the innkeeper at Belle Oaks Inn in Texas, this was one of the first things I was taught to make by the owners. Their "signature" breakfast bread. It is always a huge hit with guests and is deceptively simple!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

No one will guess this pecan orange bread is made from canned biscuits. It almost tastes like a pastry made from scratch. This is delicious and beautiful when presented. The orange sugar mixture coating on the biscuits bakes to a buttery sugary crust with a hint of citrus. Inside the biscuits is a warm, creamy filling that complements the other flavors. Not only is the orange glaze pretty, but it also adds a sweet orange flavor to the bread. Simple to prepare, this is a great addition to a brunch spread. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Belle Oaks Inn Pecan Orange Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Spray a large Bundt pan liberally with non-stick spray. Set aside. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Pour sugar into a small bowl. Zest both oranges and add to sugar. Mix to combine. Reserve oranges to juice for glaze.
  3. Melt butter. Pour a small amount of butter into the Bundt pan and spread 1/2 the pecans in the bottom.
  4. Open the cans of biscuits. Taking one biscuit at a time, open each biscuit and insert 1 tsp of cream cheese into the center.
  5. Press to seal.
  6. Dip the biscuit in butter.
  7. Then dip in sugar-orange zest mixture, coating the entire biscuit.
  8. Stand biscuit in the Bundt pan on its side. Repeat with the remaining biscuits, creating a circle around the Bundt pan.
  9. Pour remaining butter over the biscuits and sprinkle remaining pecans on top.
  10. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until biscuits are puffed and golden.
  11. Remove from oven and turn the bread out from Bundt pan onto a serving platter.
  12. Mix confectioners' sugar with the juice from the oranges to create a glaze. You may add a dash of orange extract if desired to intensify the orange flavor. Use as much juice as needed to create a glaze consistency you like.
  13. Drizzle glaze over bread while still warm.
  14. Best when served warm, but can also be served at room temperature. Reheat in the microwave for 30 seconds if desired.
