  • What a lovely orange pound cake! Love this! I’m sure the orange juice and zest add a nice hint of orange! I’ll have to try this! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  • Simple pound cakes like this are such a perfect and easy thing to put together as a gift to someone in need. I love that you added orange. Normally I have had pound cake with lemon flavourings but this gives it a more Autumn feel.

  • Simple, beautiful, and delicious! As one of the #SundaySupper Jersey girls, thank you!

  • That looks wonderful, I bet it tasted fantastic too
