Orange Cake
July 29, 2007

This was a great base recipe, but I could tell from reading it that it wouldn't have the strong orange flavor I was looking for. First, I used a lemon cake mix instead of a yellow one to increase the citrus taste. Then I used orange extract instead of lemon. To really pump up the orange flavor, I added 3/4 of a packet of orange Kool-Ade unsweetened drink mix to the dry ingredients. I put the other 1/4 packet in the glaze. After the cake cooled, I put it back in the bundt pan and poked big holes in the bottom of the cake with a chopstick. Then I poured most of the glaze over the bottom of the cake and let it soak in for about 20 minutes. I then inverted the cake onto a cake plate and drizzled the remainder of the glaze over the top. This came out great; very orangey and saturated with glaze. Delicious.
