Orange Pound Cake is a classic dessert, most of the times it's served with whipped cream and fruits. 

This Orange Pound Cake recipe will make you fall in love with citrus desserts. It's topped with a heavenly orange glaze and it's perfectly moist.


Pound cake made in a bread pan.

I think it's high time I get a Bundt pan. I have being busy with work, actually I now have two jobs,so I haven't even had time to be in the kitchen or to check out my blog, but I had to spare some time for my readers. Anyway I'll be done with the other job in 5 days, so I'll only be left with one job 😊 the permanent one, I guess I'll now have time to do things, luckily perhaps I can get me a Bundt Pan. 

The bad thing about an office job is that you start work at 8AM and knock off at 5PM. That's not the only problem with me though, the biggest problem is that I reach home around 7PM - 8 PM because my work place is very far from home. This chick definitely needs to find a hours near work. Yeah so the only days I get to rest is Saturday and Sunday, these are the only days I can sit down and write, unless I'm giving a mother's day, it's a holiday or when I'm on leave. I guess these are the realities of being an adult, the responsibilities come in.


Anyway the cake looks like bread because a bread pan was used, other than that, it's delicious and moist just like any Pound cake. 

For a second I was scared that this baby was going to taste like bread 🤣 silly me! How can a cake taste like bread because of it's shape? Haha.

Butter: 4 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter.
