I have a yummy dessert for you today!  You know that I have a recently love affair with anything citrus.  I found this recipe for Orange-Lemon cake in my May issue of Simple and Delicious.  I combines the citrus flavors of lemon and orange. 

You use a lemon cake mix and add a box of orange Jello.  Yes that is right, I said Jello!  Then this yummy cake is finished off with a simple powdered sugar icing.  Next time I think I’ll add some orange rind to the icing and pump up the orange flavor even more.  You could also very easily change this to a lemon lime cake by using lime Jello.

Here is what you need to make the

  • LEMON CAKE MIX
  • ORANGE GELATIN

Ingredients
  

  • 1 package 18-1/4 ounces lemon cake mix
  • 1 package 3 ounces orange gelatin
  • cup water
  • cup canola oil
  • 4 eggs

Icing:

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3 to 4 teaspoons orange juice
  • I am adding some orange rind next time

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, gelatin, water, oil and eggs; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan (I found if you use Pam BAKING spray your bundt instead of will always come out perfect.  Make sure it is the BAKING spray.)
  • Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Combine confectioners' sugar and enough orange juice to achieve desired consistency. Drizzle over cake. Yield: 12 servings.

  7. I made this cake for dessert after inviting an ex-boss and her husband for supper. They both agreed that it was the best ‘scratch’ cake they ever tasted…LOL! At times like this, I love people that think they know everything!!!
    Only reason I made it with the mix was because I had made another cake but it didn’t come out! I had just enough time for a real quick recipe and smelled nice too when they arrived.

  9. I made this and it was FABULOUS! I actually made two. One for my family, and one to take to a BBQ. One of the best cakes I’ve had!

  11. I just recently made a cake very similar to this, however I used a lemon cake mix, eggs called for on box then added a can of mandarin oranges (with juice). No oil or anything else. Very tasty! Wondering if you have tried this?
