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
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.
