Blood Orange Buttermilk Pound Cake // Candid Statement

Spring is fast approaching and while I’m very excited for warm weather and for the flowers to bloom, I’m trying to savor these last few weeks of winter- I know that as soon as the temperatures are consistently above 80 degrees, I’ll be missing my boots and sweaters. I took advantage of the last blood oranges of the season to make this pound cake and it turned out beautifully. In my opinion, buttermilk adds wonderful flavor to baked goods and it was moist without being overly dense in the way some pound cakes can be. My glaze was pretty thin (I was running low on blood-oranges so I added less sugar), but I didn’t mind how it soaked into the cake and the lower sugar made it less overwhelmingly sweet. I think grapefruit would be a good substitute for the 9 or so months that blood oranges aren’t available. Overall, I was so impressed with how well this pound cake turned out. An added bonus- my house smelled amazing for hours after I made this!
