I simply love the Pioneer Woman!

This is a cake I watched her make recently…as I sat cross-legged…drooling…in front of the TV….

Just as I do every time I watch her show!

It’s ok…I know you do it too!

I wanted mine to taste a little more orangey—yes..that’s a word…

so I altered it a little with 1/2 of the soda and 1/2 OJ…and all OJ in the glaze…Yum!


  • 3 sticks Butter, room temperature
  • 3 cups Sugar
  • 5 whole Eggs
  • 3 cups cake Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 cup Orange Crush--or orange soda of your choice
  • 1/2 cup Orange Juice

  • 3 cups Powdered Sugar
  • Pinch Of Salt
  • 1/4 c Orange Juice


Step 1

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

With your mixer, cream together butter and sugar.

Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition.

Step 4

Combine flour and salt, then add it 1 cup at a time, mixing after each addition.

Step 5

With the mixer on low, slowly add 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons orange soda until combined.

Step 6

Next add the orange food coloring and the orange zest.

Step 7

Thoroughly spray a bundt pan with nonstick baking spray.

Step 8

Add large spoonfuls of batter until the pan is filled, then even out the surface.

Step 9

Bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Step 10

Remove the pan from the oven and let it sit in the pan for 5 minutes.

Step 11

Carefully turn it out onto a cooling rack and let it cool.

Step 12

Combine all the glaze ingredients in a bowl and gently whisk until .

Use a spoon to drizzle it all over the cake. Sprinkle with a little extra orange zest.

Step 14

Let the glaze set, then slice and serve!

Juicy Orange Pound Cake

Yes…it’s 3 sticks of butter and 3 cups of sugar…

it’s all about balance my friends…


Cream that together and then add the eggs one at a time…


Add your flour and salt…


Pour in the Orange Crush and Orange Juice…


Mix well…scraping the bowl…

I also kept adding orange food color to deepen the color…


It became most beautiful like this!


Pour it in your greased and floured bundt pan…


After baking on 325 degrees for 1 hr and 10 minutes…perfection!!


Wow…it seems dangerously close to the edge!!


Let it cool 5 minutes in the pan and then turn out onto your plate…


Those 2 little spots that stuck to the pan will be fixed with glaze so you don’t have to fret at all!


Mix your glaze ingredients…you can also add some orange color to this if you wish…





And that Sweet Man says we should get the tiny Orange Candy Slices and dip them in white and/or chocolate to add to the edges..

He has the best ideas!!
