I cannot find the Duncan Hines orange cake mix anymore. I want to use the Duncan Hines yellow cake mix and add ingredients to it to use as a substitute for the orange cake mix. Would I just add some orange extract?

Orange Cake: Add 1 teaspoon grated orange rind to mix and use 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract. To make the yellow cake mix taste more like orange cake, use orange juice in place of the water.
Why don't you start making your own cake mixes instead of the store bought.
Try the following website: http://www.recipezaar.com and type "Orange Chiffon Layer Cake" in the search box. (08/24/2009)
Just add a package of orange Jello to the mix. For frosting, use a pkg of instant vanilla pudding and 2 cups of cool whip. You can use some orange zest (grated rind) for a garnish. (08/25/2009)
Here's an orange soda cake recipe I have used.
Combine cake mix, soda, oil, and egg. Beat with an electric mixer at med speed until smooth.
Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. (08/25/2009)
I purchase Duncan Hines orange cake mix at Meijer all the time. Makes for great cookies adding white chocolate chips. Or as the post above suggested, call the 1-800 number on the box and ask them. I sure hope they don't do away with it.
Mix all together and drop on ungreased cookie sheet using a cookie scoop.
Bake in 350 F. oven for 8-10 minutes. No need to frost as they are very sweet on their own. (08/26/2009)
