Blood oranges are in season around January and February and are perfect for an alternative curd creating a vibrant red colour bringing some sunshine into the winter months. This recipes works perfectly well with regular oranges, clementine's or tangerines. Just be patient with the stirring as it does take time. The reward is a silky smooth curd that is far superior than anything shop bought.
This is not truly a donut batter as it contains no yeast but I used a donut tin to create the round cakes. If you don't have a donut tray then this mixture is very similar to a muffin mix so feel free to use a muffin tray instead. This recipe can be made using any mincemeat of your choice but for an extra treat why not try making our superfood goji and cranberry mincemeat instead.
