The Best Orange Pound Cake Ever

Last week I made Lemon Bread, this week is Orange Pound Cake.  I’m sucker for pound cake anyways but wanted to try adding a little flavor to one. This was a hit to say the least and gone in about 30 seconds.  Would have been sooner but they had to pause and drink some milk with it.

p.s. I would love to see you join the new foodie community.  I already gave away two fabulous prizes to active members and that’s only the beginning;)
