While visiting with my family, my sister Betsy made the most delicious cake for us to enjoy. If you have ever had Lemon Jello Cake this is very similar, only you use oranges, instead! So, so yummy! I also wanted to share with you the cookbook she got the recipe from. Both my sister and I own this cookbook and love it. It is called the Cake Mix Doctor by Anne Byrn. Every recipe in the book starts with a basic cake mix~ I highly recommend it!
Cake Mix Doctor Cookbook by : Anne Byrn
I love how the cake looks on my sister's antique milk glass cake stand!
1 package yellow cake mix with pudding
1 cup fresh orange juice (about 5 med. oranges) or from carton
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 large eggs
Mix together for about three minutes with electric mixer. Pour mixture into greased and floured bundt pan. Bake cake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes. Let cake cool.
1 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted
3 tablespoons fresh orange juice (about 1 med. orange)
1 teaspoon fresh grated orange zest (from about l med. orange)
Combine the c. sugar, fresh orange juice, and orange zest in a small bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until smooth. Place the cake on a serving platter and pour the glaze over the top, letting it drizzle down the sides and into the center. Let the glaze set for a few minutes before slicing.
Thanks Bets!! ;)
