This delicious blood orange pound cake let's the citrus flavor shine through. Plus it's topped off with a beautiful pink blood orange icing.


Combine the gluten free flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Then combine the sour cream and ⅓ cup of the blood orange juice.

Step 1

Use your fingers to rub the orange zest into your bowl of sugar. This will impart the orange oil to the sugar creating a stronger flavor.

Step 2

Add the butter and orange sugar to the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes, until light and fluffy.

Step 3

Add the vanilla followed by the eggs, one at a time, mixing for 60 seconds between each addition.

Step 4

Turn the mixer to low and add half of the flour mixture, followed by half of the sour cream mixture. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.

Step 5

Spread the batter into your prepared pan and bake!

Step 6

When the cake is cool, combine the powdered sugar with 2-3 Tablespoons of blood orange juice. Whisk it until it is smooth. Pour over the cooled caked and top with chopped pistachios.

Step 7

Perfect for a celebrating citrus season!
