Christmas is just around the corner and it is the time of the year when one is engaged so much in baking goodies and especially cakes. Apart from baking Christmas plum cakes I love baking sponge cakes for friends and families which is a perfect tea cake to serve your guest visiting you during this festive season. And today I am sharing a cake which I love baking during this festive season and it is Glazed Orange Bundt Cake.
Don’t you love baking bundt cakes? For me I love baking bundt cakes and always feel extra excited when the bundt cakes comes out of the oven perfectly baked. I love the lovely beautiful shape of the bundt and the amount of glaze I will pour over it.
This glazed orange bundt cake is an egg free cake. I have replaced eggs with curd / yogurt and have added fresh orange juice and orange zest in a simple cake batter. The cake turns out so flavourful, soft and spongy.
(Also read Chocolate Wine Fruit Cake, It is an eggless cake made with whole wheat flour, fresh fruit juice, nuts and wine soaked dry fruits).
This cake is super simple and a foolproof recipe. Soft, fluffy and delicious. It is also one of the superhit cake that I have been baking for long and it is still one of my favourite. The cake itself is so good but the cherry on the cake is the orange glaze which takes the cake to the top.
