This is it! I had a lot of oranges in the house because Maddy and Lindsey had both gotten some in produce coop boxes and brought them over. I used a Cara Cara orange in this recipe. I used to think that Cara Cara oranges were just a type of blood orange. I have discovered that I was incorrect in thinking that. Blood Oranges and Cara Cara have different "parentage", if you will and the Blood Orange is not as sweet as the Cara Cara. The Blood Orange has a slight raspberry flavor to it. The Cara Cara oranges are sweet and juicy! I used that reddish juice and the zest in this Zucchini Orange Bundt Cake. Yup! Time to pull out that bundt pan again! Our weather has stayed so nice this year that I am able to bake longer than usual!
The flavor of this Bundt cake was vanilla with the slight orange hint coming through. The zucchini added moisture and texture to the cake. The cake was light and soft and the color was quite beautiful, with its golden color and green and orange flecks.
