# GlutenFree Orange Blossom Pound Cake

We have a beautiful Valencia orange juice tree in our back yard. I just love to go out to my back yard in sunny Southern California and pick oranges from my tree. Then let my mind go crazy on what I can create.  I knew it was juicing time and the oranges were perfect.

This recipe makes enough for one Large Tube pan or 1 bundt pan and 3 small loaf pans or 1 large loaf pan. I chose to make the bundt pan with 3 small loaf pans then I could share some too with my neighbors after a beautiful service. I love to use my Big Kitchen Aid Mixer for a cake like this.

Orange Blossom Pound Cake

Serves 24

3 Sticks Margarine ( Land of Lakes available at 99 cents store)
3 Cups Sugar
6 eggs
1 cup fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
The Zest of One Orange about 2 teaspoons
3 cups All purpose Gluten Free Flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
Baking Spray I use Crisco Spray it's gluten free
2 Tablespoon powder sugar for garnish

1 Large Tube pan or 1 bundt pan and 3 small loaf pans or 1 large loaf pan

In a separate bowl sift together: Flour and Baking Soda

For large recipes like this I like to use my Kitchen Aide mixer: Cream together( using paddle mixing blade) Margarine, sugar,

Next add eggs in one at a time, scraping down the sides occasionally,

Add in orange zest then orange juice.

beat until creamy next add all of flower mixture on slow speed mix together until thoroughly blended together.

Next Spray pans with baking spray that includes flour spray all pans and preheat oven at 350 degrees. Cook bundt pan for 40 min or Large Tube pan for 60 min.
Bon Appetite!

  1. So much orange goodness! It's great living in CA where you can literally go outside to pick avocados, oranges, lemons, limes and rosemary from trees and shrubs in the yard. Talk about local!
