Orange Soda Pound Cake

Pound cakes are super popular in the south. The traditional vanilla pound cake always works well. But, it is fun to play around and come up with other fun variations.

One of my favorite of the flavored pound cakes is Orange Soda Pound Cake. It’s a creation by one of the women at our sister church. Around here, small churches often share a minister and are called sister churches. Several times each year, the sister churches get together and share food, a good time, and recipes.

Orange Soda Pound Cake is especially good frosted. We’ve included a good frosting recipe for this cake, below.



Cake Directions

  1. Cream Crisco, butter, and sugar well. Add eggs one at a time and cream each egg well. Mixing well at this stage is what gives pound cake some air and makes it rise high.
  2. Rotate adding a little orange soda with flour. Mix after each until smooth.
  3. Add the orange and vanilla flavorings and do the final mix.
  4. Bake at 325 degrees F for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Times may vary a bit. Use a toothpick to make sure the cake is done. The toothpick should come out clean when the cake is ready.

Frosting Directions:

  1. Cream butter and cream cheese.
  2. Mix in confectioners sugar and flavorings.
  3. Stir or use a blender and mix until this looks like frosting.
  4. Spread on warm Orange Soda Pound Cake. It will run a bit which is what it's supposed to do. Remember that this is a glaze and not a traditional frosting which is a bit heavy for most pound cakes.
