Orange Slice Cake


This cake is from an old recipe book....300 Ways To Use Your Bundt Pans.  Such a fun recipe I couldn't resist trying it out.  So very tasty.

Chopping the orange slices did take forever so brace yourself for that part.  Be sure to grease the dickens out of the pan because man did the top of the cake want to stick....harsh language was used to coax it out.  ;)

I didn't plan to do a chocolate drizzle, but the cake looked unfinished to me with just the white glaze.


Orange Slice Cake

Cake:
1lb orange slices, cut fine
8oz chopped dates
1 1/3 cups sweetened flaked coconut
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup milk, soured

Glaze:
14oz can non fat sweetened condensed milk
12oz white milk chocolate chips
2 tsp orange extract
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (garnish)

Mix 1/2 cup of the flour with the dates, orange slice pieces, and coconut and stir to coat.  Set mixture aside.

Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy.  Mix in eggs.  Add in vanilla, salt, and baking soda.  Alternately add milk and remaining flour to batter.  Fold in orange slice mixture. Pour batter into greased bundt pan and bake at 325 for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until cake tests done.  Cool.

Mix together sweetened condensed milk, white chocolate chips, and orange extract.  Microwave, stirring often, until smooth and creamy.  Spoon glaze over top of cooled cake.  Chill to set the glaze.

Melt dark chocolate chips.  Spoon chocolate into ziplock bag with tip cut off.  Drizzle chocolate over bundt in whatever pattern you prefer.  Chill.



The first slice of cake never comes out pretty.....and yet I took a picture of this slice anywho....ehehehe.

  6. This looks sooo good! I bought a bag of orange slices a while back and didn't know what to do with them until now. Thank you. I love baking bundt cakes more than anything else and would love to have a copy of that book.

  7. Even if you weren't planning on the chocolate, I think it's the perfect addition. This makes me think of those chocolate oranges you get at Christmas. You know the ones you have to slam down on the ground to break apart?
