Orange Cake
May 13, 2008

The ongoing theme with the comments on this recipe seems to be to change it... I definatly don't think it's a 5 star recipe 'as is'. I did the original first and it was too lemony. Moist, light- but definatly not predominantly orange. I was looking for a very fresh, very obviously orange cake so my next try was to follow the recommendation of all the other bakers who tried it their way. I subbed vanilla pudding for the lemon and orange extract in place of the lemon. I added 3 teaspoons of the orange instead of 1. I also used a french vanilla cake mix with it. NOW it's a 5 star recipe! Very fresh- the orange lingers in your mouth! I didn't do the bundt cake with the glaze. I filled it with a coconut cream and mandarin orange filling and frosted it in almond buttercream. AMAZING! P.S. Add a little orange gel food coloring to it. You wouldn't expect a strawberry cake to be white would you?
