Orange-Soaked Pound Cake

I found this recipe on the back
of a Betty Crocker pound cake box mix. 
It's easy and hard to resist!

Orange-Soaked Pound Cake


1 box Betty Crocker pound cake
1/2 C powdered sugar
3 - 4 t. orange juice
1/8 t. grated orange peel

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake cake mix as directed on box for 1 (9x5 inch) loaf pan.  Cool 10 minutes.  Remove from pan; cool about 30 minutes.  Pierce with fork every 1/2 inch.

Stir together powdered sugar, 3 teaspoons of the orange juice and the orange peel. Stir in just enough remaining orange juice to make glaze smooth and consistency of thick syrup. Pour slowly over warm cake, allowing some to drizzle down sides. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired. ( I left off the powdered sugar; it was sweet enough.)

Servings: 8
