Citrus Glaze Recipe


As the weather gets cooler, so does my itch to bake something.  From cookies to cake, I have the biggest sweet tooth!  My family looks forward when I bake too.  I love seeing their curious faces as they round the corner and smell something delicious baking in the oven.

One evening after a nice dinner at home, I decided to indulge in dessert.  My son asked for cake.  Then, I realized I was out of eggs! 

After heading to the store to shop for ingredients, I lost my motivation to bake.  To keep my family happy, yet make dessert simpler, I decided on this easy recipe instead-- using a store bought, frozen pound cake.  Shhh...it's our secret!!

The citrus glaze is a tangy addition.  It came together in minutes and makes the pound cake more moist.

Made from scratch works best when I have the energy, but sometimes you need a nice short cut!

Ingredients 

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar 
2 tablespoons butter, melted 
2 teaspoons orange zest
 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice 
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Directions

Place ingredients in a bowl and whisk until smooth.  Glaze is thick and sticky!  Place pound cake on a cooling rack or cake serving tray and pour glaze over the cake.  Let cake set for an hour before slicing.  Serve and enjoy!  *Side note--This glaze would also be delicious brushed on top of fish with some salt and lemon pepper for an extra hint of flavor!
