This glaze is fresh and delicious. It uses real orange juice, not the stuff out of the container. It adds a real nice kick to angel food cake or any kind of loaf cake.

Very simple and fresh tasting. I did add about a tablespoon of melted butter only because powdered sugar can have a chalky-like under tone with too few ingredients. This was perfect as a glaze over a deep chocolate cake.

Great easy recipe to have on hand. I like a strong orange kick, so I added 1/2 teaspoon of finely grated rind. Ended up having to add 2 tablespoons of orange juice. Goes well on cranberry orange nut bread.

The name of this recipe says it all--it's a simple, fresh orange glaze. I made this to go on Big Soft Ginger Cookies (also on this site), and the combination was wonderful. I had to use a bit more orange juice to get the right consistency for drizzling on cookies, but the results were perfect. This is a nice glaze to have on hand for a variety of uses.
