#BundtBakers ~ Orange Pound Cake
#BundtBakers is a group of Bundt loving bakers who get together once a month to bake Bundts with a common ingredient or theme. We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme or ingredient.
This month our hostess is Felice from All That’s Left Are The Crumbs who challenged us to make Bundts of "Orange" - color of the ingredients, flavor, you name it! You can see all our of lovely Bundts by following our Pinterest board. Updated links for all of our past events and more information about #BundtBakers, can be found on our home page.
My head is just about exploding tonight, thanks to one of those lovely fall colds my sweet angel (aka carrier of the small child diseases) brought home to me so I'm going to make this short and sweet. This cake came together really easily, even on a work night when I feel like death, and baked up quickly since I used my bundtlette pan (which are so stinking cute)! The glaze gives it a little extra touch of sweetness and moisture. I love all that orange flavor infused into this cake - it would make a great accompaniment to a cup of tea at the end of the day. Because of the citrus flavor it's not heavy at all. Being a pound cake by trade, it is certainly very buttery, and has a slightly firm texture that makes it easy to slice and serve! I think this is a great recipe if you're looking for something citrusy to serve - it would make a good spring cake. When I can actually taste things again, I'll update you on my full opinion - right now I can only give you my best guess!
