This is a fabulous coffee cake! It has a crumbly sliced almond and brown sugar streusel topping plus a delicious glaze and a hint of orange throughout the cake. For variety, substitute a different type of nut in the streusel mixture. You can also use a Bundt cake pan if you don't have a tube pan. Absolutely irresistible!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 inch tube pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix brown sugar, almonds, and flour. Stir in butter and 1 teaspoon orange zest, and set aside.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, thoroughly beat together butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Mix in eggs one at a time. Beat in remaining teaspoon orange zest and vanilla extract.
  4. In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and baking soda. With an electric mixer set to Low, alternately mix in egg mixture and 2/3 cups orange juice to make a batter. Spoon 1/2 the batter into the prepared 9 inch tube pan. Top with 1/2 the brown sugar mixture. Cover with remaining batter, and top with remaining brown sugar mixture.
  5. Bake 25 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
  6. Mix 5 teaspoons orange juice and confectioner's sugar in a small bowl, and use to glaze the cooled cake.
  7. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

I thought this was delicious! Based on the previous comments, I baked this cake for longer (40-45 mins) and used less streusel for the middle layer. I really like the orange flavor of the cake. It's pretty sweet, so I would even leave off the glaze.

The brown sugar melts and makes the cake mushy and it looks and even tastes raw. I would never even attempt this cake again.

I was not sure if I should attempt this recipe due to low ratings, but it looked like the kind I like, with no box ingredients etc. I made it for my co-workers and it was a tremendous hit. I thought it was excellent myself. Not too much work, and a very nice orange flavor that I often don't bake with. I got one complement that it was the best cake a girl had ever had. So, I recommend trying it. I am actually going to bake it again for another group of friends very soon!
