    Kerfuffle-Upon-Wincle's Note:

    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!!!

      This is a perfectly moist and delicious pound cake. I didn't have the orange extract, so I zested and juiced one orange and reduced, added about 2 TBS. I also glazed with the juice and zest from one orange, 1 inch cube of fresh ginger grated, a tsp of vanilla and powdered sugar. SO GOOD! I used one 6 loaf mini pan and one regular bread pan. The mini loafs took 45 minutes and the full size pan, about an hour.

      Yummy times 10x. What a great cake. Made it according to directions. I did brush with a orange glaze, not a icing type, but just a pure orange glaze. I used oj and reduced it with a little sugar, just reduced until it was syrupy and then used that as the glaze. I used everything as suggested. However I did use my mini bundt pan which worked very well, I just had to adapt cooking time. Normally I would of made it in my full bundt, but I made this for 3. It turned out great. Already had a piece. French orange zest, candied ginger are important, don't skimp. You will enjoy it. And you are baking use real sour cream, no NO fat stuff, it is worth it. Great cake! Light, great flavor fresh flavors. Will definitely definitely make again!! Thx for posting
