I just joined this fun group and will bring you a bundt cake every month that I join in. Some familiar faces, some new, all giving you amazing bundt cakes month after month.
January is called Tangy January and the theme is citrus. I hummed and hawed about what to make but then just before Christmas I found a little present for myself and nabbed this gorgeous bundt cake pan that makes little one. I made the first batch but filled them too much so had to make a second one. Not that Amber was upset as she loved them and we also served them for New Year’s Eve. A delightful orange flavor that came shining through from a bunch of different orange sources. Orange juice, orange extract, orange zest and orange yogurt. You would think it would be too much flavor but it was just right. Then I added a little Grand Marnier glaze and that just finished it off perfectly. I am so happy to share this with you today being my very first bundt cake in a very long time. Enjoy, it is a perfect cake for anytime of the year!!!
- ½ cup butter, softened
- 1¼ cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. orange extract
- 2 Tbsp. orange juice
- Zest of an orange
- 2 cups cake flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- ½ tsp. salt
- 170 gm. container orange yogurt or a scant ½ cup
- ½ cup buttermilk
- ⅓ cup icing sugar
- 1 Tbsp. Grand Marnier
- 2-3 drops orange extract
- Water for desired consistency
- Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour a six cup mini bundt pan.
- In a large bowl of a standup mixer with a paddle attachment blend butter and sugar together for 2 min. on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, orange extract, orange juice and orange zest and blend. Mix flour with the salt and baking powder and add to the mixture along with the yogurt and buttermilk. Beat for 2 min. scraping down the bowl often.
- Divide the batter among the cavities to ¾ full. I also made four cupcakes for the size of pan I had. Don't over fill as you won't have a pretty result with them oozing over the edge.
- Bake for 20-25min. Cool in pan for 10 min. Invert onto rack and cool completely. Prepare glaze and drizzle over each cake. Serve at once or store them up to two days.
