Simple Orange Loaf Cake

I have ended up with lot of  store-brought Juices (Orange, Grapefruit, Cranberry etc) from the recent cocktail party. Now I need to put up good use for these left over juices. I have already used grapefruit etc in my Nutribullet Shakes, But reserving Orange Juice to make this delicious Orange Flavored Pound Cake. I have searched for several recipes, but all the pound cakes are very dense and made with rich ingredients. Finally I have settled with this simple recipe, which turned out to be loaf cake than pound cake. Oh Man, the cake is so delicious,moist and packed citrus flavor; the recipe is very simple. First time I have tried the Orange Glaze on top as well. This got best votes in my family and at work, Kids loved this and my little Anvi begging me to make more or one for every week. This is a Keeper recipe for my family! Here is the recipe, Njoy!

Orange Loaf Cake
recipe source: Fine Cooking

All Purpose Flour - 2 Cups
Baking Powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Butter - 1 cup (softened)
Granulated Sugar - 1 1/4 cup
Eggs - 3
Vanilla Extract - 1 tsp
Orange Juice - 3/4 cup
Orange Zest - 1 Tbsp

Confections Sugar - 1 cup
Orange Juice - 1/4 cup

Preparatory Steps: 
  • Heat the Oven to 350F. Butter a 9*5 inch loaf pan.
  • Mix the Confections Sugar  and Orange Juice in the medium bowl, until you get the glaze consistency. 

  1. Mix APF, Baking Powder, salt in a medium bowl and set aside. 
  2. In a large bowl, add softened butter and sugar. mix thoroughly until sugar combines with butter. Add 1 egg at a time to the bowl and keep on whisking. Add 1 tsp Vanilla Extract and 1 Tbsp of Orange Zest and mix it well.
  3. Now add the Flour mixture to the wet mixture alternating with Orange juice. (First  add 1/3 flour then 1/2 orange juice, 1/3 flour, 1/2 orange juice, 1/3 of flour). Mix the batter well so that everything is combined. 
  4. Transfer the batter to the loaf pan and pat it on all sides to eliminate any air pockets. Bake in the Oven for 55 to 60 min or until the toothpick comes out clean. 
  5. Remove the cake from the Oven once it is done, let it cool on the rack for 10 min. Run the knife around the pan and invert the cake. Make some holes with tooth pick. 
  6. Brush the Orange Glaze on top of the cake, keep on brushing until the glaze sinks inside and at the end pour the remaining glaze on top. Let is sit for at least 2 hours for the glaze to sink in which makes the cake super moist. 
After 2 hours, cut the cake into Loafs and serve immediately and dig into deliciousness.
