♥ Orange Velvet Pound Cake

Orange Velvet Pound Cake

1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, soft
2 1/2 cups Dixie Crystals Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
5 large eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 tablespoons grated orange zest,
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup orange juice
1 cup shredded coconut

Orange Glaze

2 tablespoons orange juice
2 teaspoons fine grated orange zest
1 cup Dixie Crystals Confectioners Powdered Sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 10 inch tube or bundt or tube pan, set aside. Cream butter until creamy, add sugar and cream further. Add eggs one at a time waiting for previous added egg to be fully incorporated. Scrape in between additions. Cream until light and fluffy. Add extract and orange zest.

Sift together flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Add 1/4 of flour and combine, add 1/3 of orange juice and combine. Repeat with flour and juice until all is incorporated. Stir in coconut. Scrape batter into prepared pan and place in oven. Bake for approximately 70-80 minutes or until center bounces back when gently pressed or an inserted toothpick comes out clean. If cake becomes too dark cover with foil. Let sit 10 minutes. Place a serving dish on top of baking pan and quickly turn upside down. Remove pan and cover with plastic food film. Let cool.

For glaze, whisk together ingredients and pour on cooled cake.
