"This glaze is fresh and delicious. It uses real orange juice, not the stuff out of the container. It adds a real nice kick to angel food cake or any kind of loaf cake." — cukatie2983

grated orange zest
freshly squeezed orange juice, or as needed
Very simple and fresh tasting. I did add about a tablespoon of melted butter only because powdered sugar can have a chalky-like under tone with too few ingredients. This was perfect as a glaze over a deep chocolate cake.
sounded good, but failed to make a good impression on some good cookies.
Great easy recipe to have on hand. I like a strong orange kick, so I added 1/2 teaspoon of finely grated rind. Ended up having to add 2 tablespoons of orange juice. Goes well on cranberry orange nut bread.
The name of this recipe says it all--it's a simple, fresh orange glaze. I made this to go on Big Soft Ginger Cookies (also on this site), and the combination was wonderful. I had to use a bit more orange juice to get the right consistency for drizzling on cookies, but the results were perfect. This is a nice glaze to have on hand for a variety of uses.
Very good!!!! I used 3 tablespoons fresh "red" orange juice..used it to glaze a carrot cake,I prefer this to cream cheese frosting!!!
This is really good for a simple orange glaze - and it's all fresh and super easy to make! I ended up needing considerably more orange juice also, a little less than the juice from half of the orange I was using, to get the drizzly consistency I was looking for. But this was awesome!
You're going to need more orange juice! I did 1 cup confectioner's, about 1/2 teaspoon zest and 3 tablespoons juice.
This glaze was wonderful. I used it for the Cranberry Nut Bread I on this site, great combination. I liked the glaze very much and would use it again for other things like cookies or breakfast rolls. Thanks so much!
