DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350F and lightly spray or grease a 12-cup Bundt style pan.
  • In a mixing bowl, sift together the cake flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and the non-fat dry milk. (This is your cake mix base. If you want to use a prepared box mix then skip this step and these ingredients and just place the mix in a large mixing bowl.).
  • Add to these dry ingredients, the orange juice, canola oil, vanilla and eggs.
  • On low speed mix the ingredients for about 1 minute until everything is incorporated and then raise the speed to medium and continue beating for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes more (your batter should be smooth and thick).
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for approximately 45-50 minutes
  • Remove pan from oven and let stand on a wire rack for 20-25 minutes to allow the cake to cool before inverting it on a cake rack to cool completely (approximately 30 minutes more).
  • While cake is near finished cooling, prepare the glaze by mixing together the sifted confectioners' sugar, orange juice and orange zest until smooth.
  • Place the cake on a serving plate and drizzle the glaze over the top of the cake so it runs down all around the outside of the cake and a bit inside. Let the glaze set up at least 10 minutes before slicing to serve.
