Glazed Orange Bundt Cake
This moist Glazed Orange bundt cake is made with orange zest, then soaked with a sweet orange syrup and finally glazed with a delicious orange concoction. Sounds delicious doesn’t it?
I encourage you to make it because it’s super easy and perfect as a dessert or even breakfast. I look forward every morning for a slice of orange heaven.
My mom used to make this bundt cake a few years back and I got a craving for it last week. Thankfully the recipe was still in my old hotmail. I made it and it was as delicious as I remember it.
I love the sweet tangy flavor and the moistness with every bite. Here is Florida, summer is the best season to get big juicy oranges and the perfect time to make this sinful Glazed Orange Bundt Cake.
This cake is so moist because as soon as I remove it from the oven, I add a tangy orange syrup all over and let it slowly soak up all the liquid as the cake cools.
This method makes a huge difference in flavor and texture. And to top it all off I make a yummy glaze and decorate with more orange zest. What more can you ask for?
If you see the inside of the cake, you will be able to see little orange specs. Those are pieces of orange zest and the are mostly responsible for the flavoring.
Believe it or not, zest has much more power and flavor than the the juice itself so don’t be stingy with the zest.

I would like to try this recipe as well but not sure of how much butter. Did you mean 2 cups of butter or 2 one half cup sticks of butter?
Sorry for the confusion! I meant 1 cup (2 sticks) of butter
Thank you so much! 🙂
I love anything citrusy. This is the second recipe I tried on your site and it is fantastic. I love baking, especially on a Sunday when I have time. I bake a lot for my friends and family. I really like your website.
Glad you liked it Diana! Thank you so much for your feedback. Have a great Sunday!
Hi, my cake is done,i am finding it hard to unmould it because it is sticked due to syrup after cooling down.What should i do, dont want to mess it up. Pls reply fast.
Hi! let it cool in the mold for 10-15 min before unmolding
It would be nice to know this recipe is for a small Bundt Cake pan not a regular sized one. I decided to try and cook it anyway in a regular sized pan but it just burnt the outside and raw in the middle. It was way to sweet! Tasted like you were eating a spoon of sugar. I couldn’t imagine adding the syrup to it also. Very disappointed.
A regular bundt cake works great for this recipe. Sorry it did not work out for you
