This super-tender cake is packed with bright citrus flavor, thanks to orange zest and juice in the batter and a sweet orange glaze. The glaze also helps keep the cake moist for several days.
Make Ahead Tips
The cake can be kept at room temperature, wrapped in plastic, for up to 3 days.

The orange pound cake was easy for me and my 2 girls (ages 8 and 4) to make.We broke into it soon after it came out of the oven and found the orange taste to be lacking. I enjoy a good zing with citrus. I am hoping that the flavor will grow with time. My girls will make the cake again, the youngest would like it without the glaze (it was too sweet for her).
This cake is absolutely delicious! It will go into the rotation for deserts. It's wonderful with coffee for breakfast or just as an afternoon treat. I will make this again.
My husband told me I should never make any other cake - I doubled the recipe to share with friends and it got rave reviews all around!
Moist, zesty, delicious and a snap to make. Fabulous!
