Look at this stunning Creamsicle Orange Bundt Cake!! We love making bundts at Noshing With The Nolands and have made many in the past. Probably my top bundt would be a Cinnamon Roll Bundt Cake.
It has been a hit for years. I used to bake a bundt once a month when I belonged to a couple of bundt groups where we shared our lovely creations. I have missed baking them and never mind indulging in them!!

A bundt cake is easy to make and with some easy prep and a good pan, I have not had one stick yet. This cake is luscious and moist and has a perfect crumb. A good bundt cake has to have a thicker batter in my opinion and this one is just perfect.
Bundt cakes became popular in the 1950s and 1960’s when Nordic Ware trademarked the bundt pan and made them out of casting aluminum. They have continued in popularity with more and more cake pan designs coming out.
Bundt cakes are easy to make, require little to no frosting, and have simple decorations. Most of them just have an easy glaze on them.
The creamsicle bundt we did a little bit different though and added more of a thick frosting piped on in a simple looping pattern. This gives the cream to the creamsicle.
Concentrated frozen (and then thawed) orange juice gives this cake a nice hit of citrus. Adding in some orange zest and orange extract gives it that needed upped flavor kick.
Don’t use too much extract or zest though as both of these can leave a bitter orange taste. It was nicely balanced with the amount we used.
This is an eggy cake with 5 whole eggs in it, so having a thick batter is okay as the eggs plus the baking soda and baking powder will help it rise beautifully.

Creamsicle Orange Bundt Cake
This amazing Creamsicle Orange Bundt Cake is a perfect way to celebrate mom on her special day!! It is full of wonderful orange flavor from concentrated orange juice, orange zest and orange extract.
- 1 cup butter, softened and more for pan
- 3 cups flour, more for dusting the pan
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 box (100 gm.) vanilla pudding mix
- 2 oranges zested (one for decoration) plus more for slices to decorate
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 5 large eggs
- 1/2 can frozen orange concentrate, thawed
- 1 tsp. orange extract
- 10 drops orange food coloring, optional
- 1/2 cup sour cream
Cream Cheese Frosting
- 6 oz. cream cheese
- 1/4 cup butter
- 3 cups icing sugar (confectioners sugar)
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1-2 Tbsp. heavy cream
- Preheat oven to 350F. Melt 1-2 Tbsp. of butter and paint the bundt pan with the melted butter. Add flour and cover all sides. Bang out excess. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl add the flour, pudding mix, baking soda, baking powder, salt and orange zest from one orange, whisk together.
- Using a standup mixer with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition. Mix in orange juice, orange extract and orange food coloring if using.
- Alternatively add the flour and sour cream, starting and ending with the flour in three batches and the sour cream in two. Don't over mix.
- Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth with a spatula. Bake for 55-60 min. or until a cake tester comes out clean. Let cake cool in the pan for 30 min. and then remove carefully onto a rack to cool completely. Cake will keep well for up to 3 days wrapped in plastic wrap.
- For the icing, mix together the butter and cream cheese in a standup mixer with a paddle attachment and whip until creamy. On low add the extract and the icing sugar. Add the cream to get the right consistency to ice. Place the icing in a decorating bag with a #6PT icing tip. Ice using long loops. Decorate with orange zest and orange slices.
- Refrigerate if making ahead of time but bring to room temperature before serving.

I love anything with orange and would love to make this cake for a spring brunch. Do most grocery stores have orange extract or would I need to order online?
