This Lemon Orange Cake is an old-fashioned bundt cake recipe also known as Gold Cake. It's topped with an orange icing for a juicy pop of flavor!





  • Preheat oven to 350˚F. Grease and flour a 10-inch bundt cake pan.
  • Sift together the cake flour and salt and set aside.
  • Cream the butter until light and gradually beat in sugar.
  • Beat in egg yolks until creamy.
  • Alternate adding milk and flour mixture, beating well after each addition.
  • Add the extracts and baking powder, mixing well. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan.
  • Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick comes clean from the center of the cake.
  • Turn the cake upside down on a rack to cool in the pan. Remove by running a spatula along sides.


  • Prepare the icing by whisking together the powdered sugar, heavy cream, and adding orange juice - enough to give icing spreading consistency.
