Directions

  1. Grease and lightly flour a 10-in. fluted tube pan; set aside.
  2. Finely grate the peel from the oranges; set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in reserved orange peel. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, beating well after each addition.

  5. Cool cake for 10 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack. Cool 10 minutes longer. Place rack on waxed paper. Brush warm cake with glaze. Yield: 12 servings.
