I've seen this recipe floating around and knew I wanted to give it a try.
It's not an overly sweet cake (probably because the entire orange is used).
Not only is it a delicious dessert, it's awesome with coffee in the morning
or tea time in the afternoon.
This was actually made for a morning ladies bible study so I made
my glaze a tad thinner and didn't use a whole lot. It was perfect.
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
2 oranges (about 1 lb. total), ends trimmed, then
cut into chunks and seeded
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons plus 1 tsp. orange juice
Coat a 10-cup Bundt pan with cooking-oil spray. In a
large bowl with a mixer on medium speed, beat butter and granulated sugar until
fluffy. Beat in eggs.
Whirl orange chunks in a food processor until somewhat smooth but not puréed. Add 1 1/2 cups orange mixture to batter and beat until
blended. Add flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder to bowl and mix just until
smooth. Spread batter in prepared pan.
Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out
with only a few crumbs clinging to it, about 55 minutes. Cool pan on a rack 10
minutes, then invert cake onto rack and let cool completely.
Whisk together powdered sugar and orange juice in a small
bowl. Drizzle over cooled cake. Let glaze set before slicing.
