Heather's Cake, an old fashion scratch cake

CAKE
4 Eggs
2 Cup Sugar
1 stick of butter
1 Cup Milk
2 Cup Flour
1 heaping tsp baking powder
2 tsp butter nut vanilla

Glaze
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 tsp Orange extract

Cake:
Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl.In large liquid measuring cup put 1 cup milk,& the butter
cut up ,place in microwave and heat for 1minute 10 seconds( until butter melts and both are hot) (not boiling).Beat eggs slightly and add vanilla and using a hand mixer add milk mixture and egg mixture alternately to the bowl with the dry ingredients. ( be careful not to scramble the eggs, you can temper them if needed)
In a prepared bundt or tube pan pour the batter. Bake at 350 for about 55 minutes,or longer if not done in that time.

Mix all ingredients of the glaze while the cake is baking.
When the cake is done and you've placed it on your cake plate ,prick the top with a tooth pick all over then with a spoon you will spoon drizzle the glaze over the cake. The glaze will harden a little as the juice seeps in to the cake and the sugar settles on top.

Note: This cake is a "MAN PLEASER", so I am told. When I asked why I was told because a guy can just cut off a big piece an hold it in his hand to eat it. We were at a club softball picnic so he was happy that he could eat and run so to speak.
What ever you want to call it, we call it really good!
