Orange zest cake! Look out lemon!

Hi there, I think of Easter Sunday or a spring day when I think of "orange zest" cake. It's not only the freshest scent while making it but it has the freshest aroma while cooking, and of course the wonderful aroma while eating it. I don't know of any bakeries in my area that even sell this cake. I have this recipe from my "Nanny" and I don't even know if there is another one like it. You be the judge!

I like a really light whipped cream or cream cheese icing on this cake. But it can be dusted with powdered sugar using a pretty stencil, or by pouring a light orange glaze over the top. Decide ahead of time so you will bake it in the correct pan. Each has a completely different presentation. Choose one to fit the occasion.


* Use bundt cake pan for pouring glaze or dusting of powdered sugar
* Use angel food pan for whipped cream or dusting of powdered sugar
* Use 2 8" round if icing in traditional icing or cream cheese icing!

Orange Zest cake ingredients


* 3/4 cup softened butter
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 3 eggs
* 3 tablespoons water
* 1/2 ts pure orange extract
* 1/2 ts pure almond extract
* 1 1/4 cups cake flour
* 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 2 oranges (zest first, then cut into sections, peal, remove seeds and skin,
put in blender to puree = approximately 3/4 cup
* 1 1/2 ts orange peel (Use a zesting tool or fine cutting service on grater)
Zest and puree the oranges last for optimal flavor and freshness.

* Cream butter and sugar.
* Add eggs, beating well after each addition.
* Add the orange puree,water,orange peel and extracts mix well.

Now in a separate bowl:
* Combine the flour, baking powder and salt
* Add to creamed mixture slowly .
* Beat for 2 minutes.
* Pour into a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

Orange glaze ingredients

1 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1 tablespoon soft butter
1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind
3 tablespoons orange juice

You may also sprinkle some orange zest on the top of the cake. If you do this, roll the zest in sugar first. It gives it a sparkle and removes the bitterness.

  2. This sounds so good, Rose. I love oranges, but I don't think I've ever had an orange zest cake before. I think I would choose the light glaze to top off this pretty cake. :)
