  • Add sugar, eggs, milk, orange juice, oil, and extracts to a large bowl and whisk until fully incorporated.
  • Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, and lightly whisk until combined. Do not over mix.
  • Pour the batter into the bundt cake and bake for about 25-35 minutes until lightly golden brown on top and a toothpick comes out mostly clean (not wet).
  • Remove from oven and let cool for about 5 minutes and then invert onto a cake plate.

Orange Glaze

  • Mix all the ingredients until fully combined. Start with 4 tablespoons of milk and add more as needed.
  • Drizzle on a warm or cooled cake.
  • Add orange zest as garnish and serve.
