This Buttery Orange Pound Cake is so good and makes a great dessert anytime.
1 cup butter or margarine or two sticks or 16 tablespoons, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk (I use 2%)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons orange zest
1/3 cup orange juice
Cream butter and sugar with mixer; add eggs and continue mixing. Mix in the milk. Turn mixer to low before adding flour mixture. Whisk together flour, salt and baking powder and add to liquids. Add the orange zest and orange juice. Spray a 9 x 5 loaf pan generously. Pour in batter. Tap pan on counter top to release any air bubbles. Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for 1 hour and about 20 minutes testing for doneness. Let cool and remove from pan. Add orange glaze.
1/4 to 1/2 cup orange juice
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Whisk together until consistency you want to pour over cake. (You can poke holes in cake and let glaze seep into the cake).
Note: Can sprinkle nuts on top if so desired.
