Orange Almond Bundt Cake

I made this yummy cake a week or so ago.  I'm a fan of a bundt, they are such simple cakes to make and they always look pretty (especially on my jadite milk glass cake plate).  This cake is fragrant and moist. It's the perfect partner to a good cup of coffee.

Orange Almond Bundt Cake
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
zest of 1 orange
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. almond essence
1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter milk

1/4 cup slivered almonds (lightly toasted)
juice of one orange
1 - 2 cups powdered sugar

In a mixer, beat the butter and sugar.  Add the eggs, zest, vanilla, and almond essence.  Beat until smooth.  Mix in the butter milk.  Add the flour, baking powder, and salt. 

Pour into a greased and floured bundt pan.  Bake at 350 F for about 40 mins or until a tooth pick comes out clean.  

Mix together the orange juice and powdered sugar to make a glaze.  While the cake is still warm, pour the glaze over the cake and then sprinkle with the almonds.

  1. I LOVE bundt cakes!! They are so dense and satisfying without being overwhelmingly sweet.

  2. This is an easy and delicious recipe.

  3. Hi, I was wondering what size pan you used? I just put this in the oven, and I have a standard size bundt pan (I think about 12 cups). However, when I read the original recipe from which this was adapted, it says to use a 6 cup bundt pan. I'm hoping mine still turns out ok, despite the much larger pan.
