This Blood-Orange Mimosa Cake recipe comes from Jocelyn Delk Adams, author of Grandbaby Cakes.
Preheat oven to 315°F. Liberally prepare a 10-cup Bundt pan with the nonstick method of your choice.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the butter for 2 minutes on high speed. Slowly add the granulated sugar. Cream together for an additional 5 minutes, until very pale yellow and fluffy. Add the eggs 1 at a time, combining well after each addition and scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed. Turn your mixer down to its lowest speed and slowly add the flour in 2 batches. Add the salt. Be careful not to overbeat. Add the Moscato, orange zest and vanilla extract. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl and mix the batter until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
To assemble the cake: Liberally poke the top of the cake with a toothpick or skewer, then pour the syrup in intervals over the entire cake, letting it seep in each time before adding more, until all the syrup is gone. There is a lot of syrup, but the cake is quite delicious when soaked through. If you don't want to add all the syrup, that is also fine.
Drizzle the glaze over the cake. Let the glaze set for 10 minutes. Serve at room temperature.
