Last week I made Lemon Bread, this week is Orange Pound Cake. I’m sucker for pound cake anyways but wanted to try adding a little flavor to one. This was a hit to say the least and gone in about 30 seconds. Would have been sooner but they had to pause and drink some milk with it.
p.s. I would love to see you join the new foodie community. I already gave away two fabulous prizes to active members and that’s only the beginning;)
- 1 stick butter (1/2cup), Unsalted & room temp
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 6 tbsp orange juice (1/4cup if freshly squeezed)
- 1/4 cup milk (you can use 2% if you want)
- 1/2 tsp grated orange rind
Preheat oven to 325′ and have your 9×5 loaf pan buttered and ready to go.
Cream butter & sugar, then add eggs and mix well; set aside. In another bowl, mix flour, baking powder and salt. In a measuring cup combine orange juice, milk and orange zest and start adding butter mixture alternating with the flour mixture until light & creamy.
Spoon (pour) into pan and bake for 45min or until center comes out clean with toothpick. Cool in pan and then remove from pan and drizzle with glaze.
