Easy Mandarin Orange Pound Cake


I always associate oranges with the winter holidays.  As a child I usually found a beautiful orange in my Christmas stocking, along with some walnuts.  Why Santa thought this combination was appropriate, I do not know, but some traditions die hard.  I’d like to share an easy recipe for Orange Pound Cake with you all.  Try it this holiday season–it is the perfect thing to have with a steaming cup of tea or coffee.

Our recipe features one of our discounted products for the month:  Mandarin Orange Fused Olive Oil.  Come by the shop to taste at 488 Main Street in Murphys, or order online at www.marisolio.com
