Orange bunt cake with chocolate glaze

Orange bunt cake with chocolate glaze



For cake

cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 large eggs, at room temperature
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 tsp orange zest

¼-½ cup fresh orange juice

2 cups cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt


For glaze

2 tbs cocoa powder

¼ cup milk

½ cup butter

3 ½ cups powdered sugar


First zest an orange. You will want to only zest the dark part of the peel do not zest the yellow part. You the orange you zested to make your fresh orange juice. (Don’t be lazy and use juice from a store if anyone should be lazy it should be me, senioritis has hit me like a bus.)IMG_0141

Then for the cake combine your sugar and butter for about two minutes (to paradise, pack your bags and hope we never have to come back to school).


Next add your eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.

Then add your buttermilk, zest, and juice.

Add the cake flour, baking powder, and salt.

IMG_0143Once that is all mixed pour it into your pan which will need to be very well greased and bake for about 30-45 minutes at 350 degrees.


While it bakes make your glaze. You will need to melt the butter and then add the cocoa powder and the milk and bring to a boil. After that add the powdered sugar and mix until everything is smooth. You will need to leave this on the stove on low heat or it will harden up  

Once the cake is done flip it. (As you can tell when I flipped it the cake ripped so there you have finally seen The Great Eileen make a mistake.)

Immediately pour the glaze over and enjoy!
