I love adding orange flavor to baked goods such as my Orange Sunshine Mini Loaves, and thought it would go nicely in cornbread. I used both orange zest and a little orange juice in this Orange Honey Cornbread which gives it a nice subtle orange flavor. I also added honey, which gives it a hint of sweetness, and sour cream which makes for a really moist cornbread.
