Cake is one of my favorite things in this world. I love it! I could eat cake every meal. This cake will quickly become one of your “go to” recipes especially if you like anything orange flavored. It is so easy to make using a mix and keeps well in a cool place for several days. It is a great cake to take to the office or on a picnic or anywhere you need a recipe your friends and family will love. I have not tried freezing it but see no reason why you couldn’t.
1 (15.25 ounce) box Pillsbury Traditional Yellow Cake Mix
1 (3.5 ounce) box French Vanilla Instant Pudding and Pie Filling
1 1/4 cups fresh or regular orange juice from carton
1 stick or 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon orange or vanilla extract
1 tablespoon orange zest
Combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, orange juice, butter and extract and mix on medium with mixer. Fold in orange zest and mix with spoon. Batter will be thick. Spray a 10 inch bundt pan with cooking spray generously. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes until center is done when tested. Cool about 10 minutes in pan. Remove and let cool completely. Add frosting or glaze recipe below. Makes 1 cake.
3/4 cup powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 to 2 tablespoons orange zest
Whisk together ingredients and drizzle over cooled cake.
Note: You could also frost this cake with my cream cheese frosting recipe and add the orange zest to the frosting or use any frosting you like on this cake. This is the only way I make this cake because we like the recipe the way it is posted above. You could make it in a 9 x 13 pan if you like.
