Ingredients

For the Orange Cake

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 6 tablespoons butter softened (I used Earth Balance Vegan sticks)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 blood orange
  • 1 navel orange

For the Glaze

  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • A couple tablespoons fresh orange juice

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour your bundt pan (regular 10 cup bundt pan). I personally prefer to use baking spray for Bundt pans.
  • Peel and cut the oranges into chunks; remove any seeds. Place the oranges in your food processor and process until the oranges are finely chopped, but not puréed. Measure out 1 1/4 cups and set aside. Any extra juice can be strained and used for the glaze.
  • Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, beating until incorporated.
  • In a large bowl, combine flours, powder, soda, and salt; set aside. Add flour mixture and chopped oranges (and it’s juice) alternately to butter mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
  • Spoon batter into prepared bundt pan. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Lower the heat to 325F and bake for about another 15 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean (my cake took 45 minutes in my oven; every oven is different). Cool cake in pan 15 minutes.

Make the glaze

  • In a small bowl whisk together the confectioners sugar and the orange juice. Start with 1 tablespoon of orange juice, adding more as necessary to thin out the glaze to your desired consistency. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cake. Slice and serve.
    Remove from pan; cool on wire rack. Drizzle on orange glaze. Enjoy!
