Zesty Orange Snack Cake with Orange Glaze

This is so good and so moist. I love the “zing” that the orange flavor leaves on my tongue. Mmm….please savor the moment and enjoy this summer masterpiece!

Makes: 24 squares

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup butter, softened

4 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp almond extract

1 Tbsp orange zest

Orange Glaze (recipe follows)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 13×9 baking dish. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder; add butter, eggs, extracts, and zest. Using a handheld mixer, beat until well blended. (Batter will be thick). Spread batter into prepared pan, and bake 25-30 minutes or until light and golden brown. Remove from oven, and pierce entire cake with a wooden toothpick, pour orange glaze over cake and cut into squares.

Orange Glaze:

1 cup confectioner’s sugar

1 tsp orange zest

3 Tbsp orange juice

1/8 tsp salt

In a small bowl, stir together confectioner’s sugar, sugar, zest, orange juice, and salt until smooth.
