Easy Summer Orange Cake
1 Medium size bundt cake
This is the perfect cake for when you are craving a homemade cake in the summer and don’t want to spend much time in the kitchen, it’s so easy to make and the aroma texture and taste gets my vote!
It also keeps great and it goes delicious with berries and whipped cream, so this summer, why not, bake away!
3 fresh eggs
1 cup sugar
½ teaspoon of vanilla
rind and juice of 1 large orange
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons sour cream or yogurt
Whisk all the above together.
Sift together and add to the wet ingredients:
2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
Continue to whisk these last ingredients and then pour into
a greased and floured medium bundt pan and bake in preheated 350 oven for 25-40 mins depending on oven.
1 1/3 cups of confectioners sugar
1/4 cup of orange liquor
1 TBS of orange zest
Place the sugar in a mixing bowl, and mix it with the liquor to create a soft dripping glaze blend well to dissolve all the sugar then add the zest at the end.
Pour over the warm cake to lock in all the moisture in the cake and ENJOY!
Enjoy Summer Baking!
