A sweet Southern pound cake, with candied ginger and a hint of orange -- This sour cream cake makes a nice crust and tender crumb. For a more robust orange flavor, brush hot cake with an orange syrup or glaze -- or top each serving with orange curd. NOTE: For the orange extract in this cake, try Orange Extract - for Your Homemade Baking Gift Baskets! -- but you'll need to plan ahead by about a week!!!
