Iced Orange Pound Cake

This Iced Orange Pound Cake was inspired by my friend Victoria.  When I made the Iced Lemon Pound Cake she had asked if I had ever made an Iced Orange Pound Cake so that is how this recipe came to be.  It is pretty much the same as the Iced Lemon Pound Cake except I used orange cake mix and orange juice.

It is not real orangy tasting but it has an orange taste to it.  The glaze is really sweet and good.

Iced Orange Pound Cake

1 box Orange cake mix
4.3 oz instant French vanilla pudding mix
1/2 C oil
4 large eggs
1/2 C milk
8 oz sour cream
1 1/2 tsp orange extract

2 1/2 C powdered sugar
3 Tbsp Orange Juice
2 Tbsp melted butter
3 Tbsp warm water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour 2 loaf pans.  Place all cake ingredients in no particular order in a large mixing bowl.  Beat with mixer until well combined, about 1 1/2 minutes.  Divide cake batter between 2 prepared loaf pans, spreading evenly.  Bake 45-55 minutes, until golden brown.  Remove and let cool for 15 minutes before removing from pans.

Prepare glaze, place all ingredients in bowl and mix until a good drizzling consistency.  Drizzle glaze over cakes and let stand for 20 minutes to firm the glaze.
