Orange-Soaked Bundt Cake

This amazingly moist and delicious cake is adapted from a favorite family recipe of Bianca Henry, a New York pastry instructor. You’ll need a thin skewer to poke holes in the cake. Serve the cake garnished with slices of peeled oranges macerated with a little sugar and rum.


For the cake:
10 oz. (2-1/4 cups) all-purpose flour; more for the pan
2 cups sugar
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
6 oz. (12 Tbs.) unsalted butter, softened; more for the pan
3/4 cup canola or other mild-flavored oil (check for freshness before using)
1-1/2 Tbs. finely minced lemon zest (from about 2 lemons)
1 Tbs. vanilla extract
3/4 cup strained fresh orange juice
5 large eggs

For the syrup & glaze:

1/2 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
1 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted
2 Tbs. dark rum
1 cup confectioners’ sugar, divided
