Orange Pound Cake

Koningsdag or King's Day is a national holiday in the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Celebrated on 27 April, the date marks the birth of our beloved and cool king, King Willem-Alexander.

Though this year, we will all miss the big party and big wave of color orange in the country, the boats, the loud music, the pre-loved items lined up on the streets and most importantly the booze!

Hopefully things will be back to normal next year. For now, we have to stay insde and I wanna share this Orange Pound Cake recipe with you all. It is moist, light and perfect for a royal life :)
