Orange Juice Cake

Orange Juice Cake ~ Quick, easy and bursting with Spring flavor ! This Orange Juice Cake takes literally minutes to prepare and it turns out super moist !


I love absolutely everything about this Orange Juice Cake ! It is quick and easy to start with, which is always a big bonus point in my book.

The cake is super moist and bursting with Orange flavor. There is really no need for anything more than the glaze.

A slice {or three!} of this cake, with a nice cup of tea, or coffee and you have a delicious tea time treat.

I mixed and baked this Orange Juice Cake so quickly, that Roy only realized we are having cake as an afternoon treat when the oh, so wonderful ! smell of baking hit him in the lounge. Of course he then had to come take a look.  That's saying a lot about just how quick this cake is to get going and finish up, as he is usually in the kitchen when he knows I am busy there.

Although, this recipe starts off with a Cake Mix, you would never guess it. The Orange Juice and the added Jello make all the difference in the world.

Seeing as we have entered Autumn in SA {and I have to mention I am ready to say bye-bye to Summer!}, I will continue to make this Orange Juice Cake throughout the year. This might be a seasonal treat, but as I have mentioned before, I am not one to stick to seasonal foods and also, we are lucky with fairly good weather during Winter in South-Africa ... yes, I am sure to change my mind in a few weeks !

Orange Juice Cake
Recipe source: Mr Food

INGREDIENTS:

1 Box Vanilla Cake Mix
1 Box Orange Flavored Jello  {jelly}
3/4 cup Vegetable Oil   {I use Sunflower Oil}
1 cup Fresh Orange Juice
4 Eggs

Glaze:

1 cup Icing Sugar
2 TB Fresh Orange Juice

Finely grated Orange Peel
2 TB Pistachio Nuts, chopped

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a bundt pan with cooking oil.
2.) Combine the Cake Mix, Jello, Oil, Orange Juice and Eggs in a mixing bowl - beat 2 minutes, scraping the bowl regularly, and pour into the prepared pan - bake 35 - 40 minutes or until springy when you touch the cake.
3.) Remove from the oven - let stand 5 minutes, then turn out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
4.) Glaze :  Beat together the Icing Sugar and the Orange Juice until smooth - drizzle over the Cake and sprinkle with Orange Peel and Pistachio Nuts.

Serve and enjoy !

  20. Looks yummy, what size box of orange jello?

    1. Mary, it is the 4 servings size box - one normally adds just under 2 cups of water when making it plain {in this recipe, no water is added} - replying here as your e-mail is not attached to your comment.
