Vegan orange pound cake
- 1 cup vegan butter
- 1-3/4 cups granulated sugar

- Confectioners sugar
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine butter and sugar. Beat until light and fluffy, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
- Add egg replacer and beat on low speed until incorporated. Add orange zest and juice and vanilla, beating until incorporated.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Add flour mixture to mixing bowl and beat on medium-low until flour is incorporated.
