If you’ve been searching for recipes of orange bundt cake, I’m sure you noticed that most of them are using boxed cake mix. A box of yellow cake mix with a package of instant vanilla pudding mix with some orange juice thrown in :) If using a boxed cake mix doesn’t give you a sense of accomplishment and a bragging rights to making an amazing orange bundt cake from scratch, this is your recipe! This easy recipe makes a moist glazed orange bundt cake from scratch without a cake mix. It’s so easy to make too, you won’t miss the convenience of the cake mix at all!
This cake has a deep orange flavor thanks to the orange juice and orange zest in the batter, plus the orange juice concentrate in the glaze. The orange juice concentrate has concentrated orange flavor to the max! When you glaze the cake while it’s still warm, some of the glaze permeates the cake, making it super moist and injecting even more orange flavor inside.
This delicious orange bundt cake is made from the simple everyday ingredients: flour, butter, sugar, eggs, sour cream and fresh oranges (their juice and zest)! You can use bottled orange juice too if you don’t feel like squeezing the oranges, but make sure you don’t skip adding the fresh orange zest because orange zest really adds amazing orange flavor! To zest an orange, just follow my tutorial on how to zest a lemon – it works the exact same way for any citrus fruits :)
