  • Summary

    Ina says this recipe is perfect for two loaves -- or do as I do, and give that Bundt cake a whirl. Either way, it's generously sized -- all the better for sharing. It also keeps moist in an airtight container in the unlikely event there are leftovers on the second or third day.

    Ingredients

    • ½ lb. (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
    • 2½ C. granulated sugar
    • 4 extra-large eggs, at room temperature
    • ? C. grated orange zest (6 oranges or about 12 tangerines)
    • 3 C. all-purpose flour
    • ½ tsp. baking powder
    • ½ tsp. baking soda
    • 1 tsp. kosher salt
    • ¾ C. freshly squeezed orange or tangerine juice, divided
    • ¾ C. buttermilk, at room temperature
    • 1 tsp. vanilla extract (I also added 1 tsp. orange extract)
    • 2 C. dark chocolate chips (optional)
    • To Glaze One Loaf (optional):
    • 1 C. confectioners' sugar
    • 1½ Tbs. freshly squeezed orange or tangerine juice
