Orange Pound Cake

Another cake, it's pound cake - close to butter cake *grin*
This time is with another mission - to finish my oh so many oranges in my fridge :)

This time recipe was from Kitchen Snippets, DH could not stop eating this, and I had a terrible confession, I ate 5 slices in one day! *faint*

What you need:

226g unsalted butter - softened
4 tbsp milk
3 eggs
1 3/4 cup plain flour
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp grated orange zest
1 tbsp vanilla

For the glaze:
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

For the cake:
Preheat oven to 165degC. Grease two small loaves pan with some butter
Sift flour, baking powder and salt and set it aside
Beat soft butter and sugar together until light and creamy
Add in eggs one at a time until well incorporated into the butter
Add in the orange zest and vanilla
Slowly fold in the flour and milk into the mixture, mix well
Pour into the loaf pan and bake until skewer inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean
Allow the cake to cool on pan for 10 minute before turning it into the cooling rack
For the glaze:
Combine sugar and orange juice in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring until sugar has dissolved and reduce glaze by half
Brush some of the warm glaze over top of cake

Love love love the texture of this cake!

I still have some leftover of the orange glaze... Perhaps I just spread over toasted bread tomorrow morning for my breakfast :)
