Orange Bundt Cake

Filed under: Uncategorized — jenseyt @ 3:53 pm
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 C + 6 T sugar
  • 4 t finely grated fresh orange zest
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 C sour cream (I used whole milk Greek yogurt.)
  • 1/4 C + 1/4 C fresh orange juice
  • 1 1/2 C all-purpose flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly butter a bundt pan.

    Beat together butter, sugar, and zest in a large bowl with an electric mixer until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating until just incorporated. Whisk in sour cream and orange juice, then add remaining ingredients, whisking until just combined.

    Transfer batter to baking pan and bake in middle of oven until golden and a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, about 30 to 40 minutes.

    Cool cake in pan on a rack 10 minutes, then turn out onto rack.  Brush on an orange syrup glaze (1/4 C fresh orange juice and 6 T sugar, whisked) while still warm.  Cool completely.
