Orange Bundt Cake/ Pound Cake
One of my kiddos favorite cake flavor is orange. My little one does not have sweet tooth. But she loves muffins and cakes that I make since I don't put too much sugar in them. This one is one of her favorites. The fresh orange flavor with nutmeg really creates a delicate balance. Whole house smells like orange scented candle has been lit. This can stay up to a week when covered in a closed container and more in the refrigerator. This freezes well too.
