Nordic Ware Orange Jubilee Cake recipe

Yields8 Servings
Prep Time15 minsCook Time1 hrTotal Time1 hr 15 mins

 3 cups plain flour
 1 tbsp baking powder
 1 tsp salt
 2 ½ cups sugar
 Zest of 2 oranges, finely grated (about ¼ cup)
 1 cup butter, softened
 4 large eggs
 ½ cup buttermilk
 ½ cup orange juice
Orange glaze
 ½ cup orange marmalade
 ¼ cup orange juice
Bakeware

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 180°C. Prepare your pan by using a pastry brush and melted butter, ensuring that you reach inside every crevice of the pan, then dust with flour. Alternately, use a baking spray that contains flour and brush excess with a pastry brush to evenly coat the pan.

2

In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.

3

In a large bowl, combine sugar and orange zest. Add butter and using an electric mixer on high speed, beat until mixture is light and fluffy – about 4 minutes.

4

Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition and occasionally scraping down sides of the bowl, until mixture is light and very fluffy – about 4 minutes longer.

5

In a 2-cup measuring cup, combine buttermilk and orange juice. Reduce speed to low. Add dry ingredients in thirds, alternating with buttermilk mixture and ending with dry ingredients.

6

Spoon batter into prepared pan.

7

Bake for 60-70 minutes or until your Reusable Bundt Cake Thermometer indicates it is cooked (or a toothpick inserted in center of the cake comes out clean).

8

Transfer to a wire rack and let cool in the pan for just 10 minutes before inverting onto a rack to cool completely.

Glaze
9

Combine marmalade and orange juice in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until syrupy – about 3 minutes.

10

Strain glaze into a small pitcher or bowl; discard solids in strainer.

11

Pour glaze over cooled cake and let sit for at least 10 minutes before serving.
