Pound Cake:

Grease and line a 9" x 5" (2 L) loaf pan with parchment paper. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. Cream butter with sugar; beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat in orange zest. Fold flour into batter, 1/3 at a time. Spread into pan. Bake in a 350 F (180 C) oven for 50-55 min. Cool completely. Cut pound cake into cubes.


Combine condensed milk and water. Add pudding mix; beat about 2 min. Chill until thickened, about 15-20 min. Fold in whipped topping. Spoon 1/3 of the pudding toping. Spoon 1/3 of the pudding mixture into 12-cup (3 L) glass serving bowl. Top with half of the cake cubes. Top with half of the pie filling and 1/3 of the pudding mixture. Repeat layering, ending with pudding mixture. Cover and chill at least 4 hours.
