Grandma Ida's Orange Cake

A Playing House Original

For the cake:
1/2 c vegetable shortening
1 c sugar
2 large eggs
2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp orange rind
3/4 c sour cream

For the glaze:
1/2 c freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 c sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine shortening and sugar until well blended. Add eggs and mix to combine. Sift flour and baking soda together and add to sugar mixture.

3. Stir in orange rind and sour cream, and pour mixture into a well-greased bundt (or other circular) pan.

4. Bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown. While the cake is still warm, invert onto a cake plate. Combine orange juice and sugar until sugar dissolves (microwave for a bit if needed) and pour over the warm cake. Enjoy!
