My grandmother made this orange pound cake several times recently and at every gathering everyone was raving about how good it was. I finally asked her for the recipe and she graciously shared it with me. Once I read it through I realized why it’s her go to! It’s so easy to make with a minimum about of ingredients.
Using a bundt cake pan seems to give it some extra pizazz without any extra effort. I love this (affiliate, see note above) rose bundt pan she used that gives it that gorgeous tiered look! It’s the same one Carlee used in her Easy Banana Bundt Cake. The really simple glaze is just drizzled on and the rose petals kind of collect the glaze in wonderful pools.
It keeps beautifully so you can make it a day ahead of time to save yourself the trouble. Be aware you will not have leftovers if you have company over!
