orangeOrange-Soaked Pound Cake #TastyTuesday

I wanted to start doing something about recipes here at TigerStrypes Blog. I see so many others having some great things on theirs, and figured it would be fun to share different ones here at TigerStrypes Blog. I love finding new ideas on Pinterest, or other social media and actually making something yummy for my family.  I always hear of families having Taco Tuesday or Meatloaf Monday, and sorry, that’s just not for me. There are a few recipes that I use that are saved in my special recipe file, and I’ll make those a little more often than others. I just want to offer my husband and our son different choices. I don’t want us to get bored with the same thing and the same flavors. Now don’t get me wrong, when things are on sale at the grocery store, I’ll be figuring out all different things to make with that. I’ve heard the “Oh Mom, Chicken Again?” drama line from DJ, but hey, if you don’t want to eat, then see ya!! Like the sign says in my kitchen…”You have 2 choices for dinner…Take it or Leave it!”. Pick one! 🙂

So with this “Recipes & More! – #TastyTuesday” weekly blog post, what I decided to start with is making something you see on a box mix, or a can, etc. How many times do you buy a cake mix or a bag of mix for cookies, and always see that recipe on the side, but never make it? I figured it would be fun to go through my pantry and use the ones I had and make something from what it shows. I saw that some of the mixes I had didn’t have a recipe on them, so for those, I’ll be heading to the manufacturer’s website to find one for the mix, if applicable, and sharing that. Be sure to share a favorite from your blog at the end, as well!!

This week’s recipe is for “Orange-Soaked Pound Cake“.  This is one using a box of “Pound Cake” from Betty Crocker and a recipe that I found on the back of the box.  Like most, I usually see the recipe and then just forget it…well, this time, I made it!!  Easy to do and tasted fabulous!!  Enjoy this simple recipe and I hope that you like it!

“Orange-Soaked Pound Cake”
Using Betty Crocker Pound Cake Mixorange

Orange Soaked Pound Cake


Servings: 8



  • 1 box Betty Crocker pound cake mix
  • ⅔ cup water or milk
  • ½ stick (1/4 cup) butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 3-4 teaspoons orange juice
  • ⅛ teaspoon grated orange peel


  • Heat oven to 350°. Generously grease loaf pan with oil spray; lightly flour (all pan types). Beat cake mix, water, butter and eggs in medium bowl on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes (batter will be thick). Pour batter into pan; spread evenly. Note: If using loaf pan smaller than 9 x 5 inches, use 2 loaf pans, or batter will overflow.
  • Bake one 9x5" pan for 50-60 minutes, two 8x4" pans for 33-40 minutes, a 12-Cup fluted tube (Bundt pan) for 38-43 minutes, a 10x4" Angel Food (tube pan) for 40-45 minutes. Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pan; cool about 30 minutes.
  • Pierce cake with fork every ½". Stir together powdered sugar, 3 teaspoons of the orange juice and the orange peel. Stir in just enough remaining orange juice to make the glaze smooth and consistency of thick syrup. Pour slowly over warm cake, allowing some to drizzle down the sides. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired.

That sound so delicious! I love anything with oranges and since they are still in season, I think I need to squeeze some fresh juice and try this fabulous recipe. Love the idea of a Tasty Tuesday, too, will be stopping in to see what’s cooking next!


I am looking forward to trying this. Orange-flavored anything and everything is my favorite!

I have never made a pound cake. This one looks great, might make it for Easter dinner.

Linda Kinsman

Yes! I would love to make this for my family. Especially my husband who had an orange glazed pound cake once and couldn’t stop raving about it. I like your idea of a Tasty Tuesday post as well. I’ll join in the fun and add a recipe to your linky. Thanks Jamie!
