  • Whip the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes).
  • In a bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (oil, milk, vanilla, orange rind).

  • Add half of the dry ingredients to the egg/sugar mixture and mix on low until just incorporated.
  • Add the wet ingredients, again mixing on low until just incorporated.
  • Add the remaining dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  • Pour the batter into a greased bundt pan.
  • Bake at 350F for about 40-45 minutes.

  • With the cake still in the pan, pour half of the glaze (about 1/2 cup) over it.
  • Allow the cake to cool in the pan before removing it.
  • Add the powdered sugar to the remaining glaze and drizzle over the cooled cake.
