Picnicin' Sourdough Pound Cake

We had a warm day and the kids wanted to picnic outside and we had to have a dessert treat. 
All my family loves sourdough cake so we whipped this little goodie up.


 3 cups cake flour
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
 1 cup unsalted butter
 3 cups white sugar
 6 eggs
 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
 1 cup sour cream 
 1 cup confectioners' sugar
 3 tablespoons orange juice
 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


 Preheat oven to 300 degrees F 
 Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan. 
 Sift together flour, salt, and baking soda into a medium bowl; set aside.
 In a large bowl, cream butter and white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Add flour mixture alternately with sour cream. Pour batter in prepared pan.
 Bake in the preheated oven for 75 to 90 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 20 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.

 To prepare the glaze: In a small bowl, combine confectioners' sugar, orange juice and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Drizzle over cake while still warm.

Now, just enjoy a big slice!
