Orange liqueur Cake

Pound cake is one of the cakes that I love to make (and eat). 


With only eggs, butter, sugar, and flour (and a small amount of the baking powder) you can create a delicious cake. But sometimes, you may want to add something special to your cake, right? And today, my cake becomes special with lovely fragrance from Orange liqueur.
Actually, the reason comes from the fact that I love to collect liqueur, so I have to find a way to use it too, haha.
But only the Orange liqueur may not be enough, so the candied orange peel is added to make the cake more orange!!!
This time, the method of making pound cake is by beating the egg with the sugar until thick and fold in the flour before mixing the butter into the batter. The result we get from this method is the finer and lighter texture cake.
You may think that it's hard to beat the egg but it's not the same as making a sponge cake, so don't worry. Just beat it until thick as it will become flat after folding the flour anyway ^^.
For the liqueur, you can use other kinds of it too, rum or brandy is a great choice.

    1. I don't know that the darker orange that you mentioned is the color of the cake or not but If you want the cake to be darker in color, replace the granulate sugar with the brown sugar.
