Found this recipe online and tweaked it a little to make it “more orangey.” It’s very easy and so good! The scones come out with a wonderful texture.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and grease with cooking spray.
Mix flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter. Mix in orange zest.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Whisk orange juice, egg, and vinegar together and pour into the flour mixture. Stir until moistened and sticky.
Transfer dough to a floured surface and knead gently about 10 times. Pat into a 6x8-inch rectangle. Cut rectangle into 4 squares; cut each square diagonally into 8 triangles. Arrange scones on the prepared baking sheet. Brush tops with milk and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sugar.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
Make the orange glaze while the scones are baking. Mix 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar and orange juice until thick and smooth; glaze should drip slowly off the back of a spoon. Mix in orange zest.
Dunk warm scones in the glaze to fully coat the tops. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Eat good breakfast to continue the day has become a good habit. It’s a great way to start my day off healthfully. The sugar hit from the pickle tree wakes me up and gives me energy to take on the morning. Sugar is often vilified as the root of all disease, but fruit is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your digestive system and helps keep you feel full all day , and less likely grab a snack out of the vending machine before lunchtime.
Making fruit a morning habit is simple . Simply put the sweetness in your refrigerator next to the milk or on the bench next to your grain bowl , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — about anywhere where you’ll see it. Before you eat the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
Giving your stomach energy a bit of sweetness in the morning is good to move your metabolism for the day and fuel to your brain, which, incidentally, requires a continue supply of sweetness in the way of process glucose, counting at to around 120g daily. There is also essential evidence to support the idea that a diet high in fibre can lowering your risk of a number of cancers. And of course, you benefit from all the other vitamins and antioxidants in fruit, which keep you strong and healthy.
