As Requested.....

There have been several requests for my orange bundt cake recipe ....

This is not a Food Blog. I repeat: this is not a Food Blog.

However, I shall cave in to peer pressure.

Orange Zest Bundt Cake

Ingredients:
2 and 3/4 cups sugar
1 and 1/2 cups butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
6 eggs
1 cup sour cream
3 cups flour
the grated orange peel from 6 oranges
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

**optional**
powdered sugar
fresh berries
fresh whipped cream

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 F
2. Grease and lightly flour a heavy cake pan (preferably a heavy, decorative molded bundt cake pan)
3. In large bowl, beat sugar and butter until lightly fluffy
4. Beat in vanilla, then the eggs one at a time
5. In a medium bowl, mix flour, orange peel, baking powder and salt
6. Alternate adding the dry ingredients and the sour cream to the ingredients in the larger bowl
7. Mix very well and pour into cake pan
8. Bake at 350 F for approximately 65 minutes (make certain that an inserted toothpick in the center of cake comes out cleanly)
9. cool for a bit
10. dust with powdered sugar, if desired
11. serve with fresh whipped cream (NOT that canned stuff) and oodles of fresh berries
12. Eat
13. Go to the gym.

Sounds heavenly. But I have no gym. . . thank goodness! And since this is NOT a food blog, I won't ask - how do you manage to keep your bundts from sticking to the pan? Whether I grease or grease & flour - they never want to leave.

I hear those silicone molds are great for keeping cakes from sticking. I must try them sometime, for this recipe.

(the slobber was so prolific that it caused my finger to slide off the "Y" key for the word "Your" and hit the "P" key instead)

(continues the drooling)
