Orange Vanilla Yogurt Cake with Orange Glaze

This is a tasty little cake, like a sweet bread with frosting.  I first saw a picture on Pinterest and found the recipe in a couple places, so not quite sure who to give the credit.  The recipe calls for vanilla bean but I have this handy bottle of vanilla paste that has the beautiful speckles of vanilla bean in the syrupy goodness, so I used that instead.


1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 cup sugar
3 tsp vanilla paste
1/2 cup oil
1²⁄3 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 (6 oz) vanilla yogurt
6 Tbl orange juice, divided

Spray two small loaf pans.  Preheat oven to 350°.  Using electric mixer, beat egg, egg yolk, and sugar.  Add vanilla paste, and oil, mix well.  In medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.   Add dry ingredients alternately with yogurt and 2 Tbl orange juice.

Pour into prepared pans and bake for 35-40 minutes.  Remove from oven.  Using toothpick poke holes into cakes.  Pour remaining 4 Tbl orange juice over hot loaves.   Let cool 10 minutes and remove from pans.  Place on wire rack to cool.  Glaze when cool.

Orange Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
orange juice
orange zest

Combine powdered sugar, orange zest, and enough orange juice for desired consistency for glaze (I made mine a little thicker).  Pour over cooled loaves.
