Orange Bundt Cake with Zesty Orange Glaze

Orange Bundt Cake with Zesty Orange Glaze: Cozycakes Cottage

My goodness.  I took quite the blogging hiatus due to my camera being broken, a trip, and life being that word I loathe (starts with a “b” and ends with a “y”).

I’m back and I’ve got cake!  This orange Bundt is a refreshing treat for tea time or an afternoon snack.  I’d serve it for a brunch, too.  I’m wild like that.  Need a dessert to tote along to a BBQ potluck or picnic?  This one will do just fine.

Although I adore lemon desserts in these spring months, this orange cake is a lovely switch from all the lemon I’m shoving at my family.  You can skip the glaze and dust it with powdered sugar only or serve the glaze on the side.  How fancy you’d be.

Enjoy! ♥

Orange Bundt Cake with Zesty Orange Glaze


  • 1 box yellow cake mix (I use Duncan Hines)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed (I use Trader Joe’s concentrate)
  • 2 Tbsp. freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 heaping Tbsp. orange zest
  • powdered sugar, optional

Zesty Orange Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp. orange zest
  • 3-5 Tbsp. freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp. softened butter (almost melted)

Preheat oven to 350°.  Grease and flour a Bundt pan or spray with a nonstick spray with flour such as Baker’s Joy.  Place all cake ingredients except for the powdered sugar in a large bowl and beat with a hand mixer on medium speed until thoroughly combined (about 2-3 minutes).  Pour into Bundt pan and bake for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.  Do not worry if the cake falls a bit in the middle especially if you’re using a decorative Bundt pan.  Let cake cool for about 10 minutes and then turn out to cool on a wire rack.  Once cooled, dust with powdered sugar if you desire.

To glaze cake:  Once cooled, mix the glaze ingredients together.  Adjust orange juice amount to desired taste and consistency.  Place cake on a serving tray or platter and pour glaze over or serve cake with glaze on the side.

  3. Looks like a perfect spring dessert – and I like the shortcut with the cake mix.

  4. This looks delicious! I was reading the post in my phone and handed it to the hubby. I said “Doesn’t this look good?” He took one look and said, “Yeah. You need to make that. Soon.” Looks like I’ll be adding some of these ingredients to the grocery list! 🙂

  5. I just found your blog and so happy I did. This cake looks and sounds delish! I love anything lemon too but orange is equally as tasty I think.

  9. What a way to make my day by having your Munchkin ring my doorbell and hand me some of your Orange Bundt Cake!! DELICIOUS doesn’t even do it justice. It was melt-in-your-mouth moist, sweet, zesty, PERFECT. My hubs and girls also indulged and everyone asked for seconds! And that glaze? To die for. I could have eaten that by the spoonful 🙂 I’m so happy to have the recipe and will be making it often. I love lemon, too, but the orange was perfect in this cake. Thanks for sharing. xoxo

  10. I just love that orange glaze!

  11. Oh my! Now this is a cake I can get on board with. I love citrus cake and glaze –yum!
