Orange Juice Cake is a quick, easy and bursting with Spring flavor cake ! The 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 my hubby 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!
