Orange Pound Cake
Updated: Mar 24
We are getting close to the Plaquemines Parish Orange Festival. So I figured why not post recipes featuring Louisiana Oranges
For the Cake
3 sticks (1 1/2 cups) Unsalted Butter, softened
2 cup granulated Sugar
2 1/4 cups Cake Flour
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed Orange Juice
1 tablespoon freshly grated Orange Zest
1 teaspoon Vanilla
For the Glaze
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed Orange Juice
1 cup Powdered Sugar
Preheat oven to 300℉. Grease and flour a tube pan.
IN a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour in two additions and mix until combined. Stir in orange juice, orange zest and vanilla. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, approximately one hour. Remove from oven, cool for 30 minutes, and turn out onto a plate.
In a bowl, whisk together orange juice and powdered sugar. Pour glaze evenly over cake.
