Soft and velvety orange pound cake made with freshly squeeze orange juice and zest. Perfect for a morning snack or brunch dessert.
I was so excited to receive a copy of Breakfast: The Cookbook by Emily Elise Miller a couple of weeks ago! I had been searching for new breakfast ideas when Phaidon approached me to send me this cookbook to share with all of you. There’s almost 500 pages filled with so many delicious recipes from all over the world, I didn’t know where to start.
I’ve bookmarked about 20 recipes, but I decided to go with the Orange Pound Cake (page 394). I love citrus cakes and wanted to make something light, easy and simple, that felt almost summery in a way.
How to make an Easy Orange Pound Cake
Bolo de Laranja, as known in Brazil and Portugal, is an orange pound cake often kept on the counter at home for a quick morning snack.
Other recipes I’m excited to try include: delicious Huevos Rancheros, Dutch Baby, Street Toast from South Korea, and Montreal-Style Bagels. She even has a recipe for Venezuelan Arepas! I might have to give that one a shot and see how my recipes compares!
A quick tip on this recipe: use freshly squeezed orange juice and avoid as much as possible using store bought. It makes a huge difference! Although the recipe calls for 3 oranges, I actually only needed 2 – so make sure to measure the cups needed correctly. Other than that, the recipe is pretty straight-forward as super easy to make. Comes together in about 15 minutes and ready to serve in an hour.
Note: The recipe calls for a bundt pan, but I used 2 Nordic Ware Loaf Pan.
If you’d like to purchase the book click here. I highly recommend it! (this is not a sponsored post, nor do I get a commission. I actually really loved this cookbook!)
Note: I took the liberty of adding a simple powdered sugar icing for styling purposes. The original recipe doesn’t call for it, so feel free to do either one. I love the balance of citrus and sweet, so it works for me!
