Orange Pound Cake Eggs

I love Easter, especially with a fancy new pan and recipe to try. You can find this pan at nordicware.com if you are interested in purchasing one.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp. grated orange peel
3/4 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. baking powder

Glaze:
1/2 cup sugar
2 T butter
3 T orange juice

Heat oven to 350. Grease and flour pan. In medium bowl, cream 1/2 cup butter and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, salt , orange peel and vanilla; mix well. Add milk, flour and baking powder; mix until blended. Pour into prepared pan. Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes, until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan. While cakes are cooling in pan, prepare glaze. In small saucepan, heat glaze ingredients over medium heat, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Remove cakes from pan and place on cooling rack; brush warm orange glaze over cakes. Cool completely.

I am not a fan of pound cake, but this recipe is very moist and quite tasty!

Because I have the pan and the recipe was included I used the egg pan. However, I'm sure this same recipe would work in a bundt pan. The cooking time would probably have to be increase to about 45 minutes, but I would start at 30 minutes and check it every 5 minutes. Please post if you try this and find an exact baking time.
