Does anyone have a recipe for orange cake?
Try this one it's an orange bundt cake
You can do a variation on an orange cake, using up ingredients that might be in the pantry:
cut an angel food cake in half (horizontally), spread a layer of cool whip or frosting mixed with bits of orange jellied slices of candy, top it with the other half of the cake, spread cool whip or vanilla frosting. On top and sides, scatter the bits of orange jellied candy.
This may give you an idea of how to be creative with what you already have in the house.
If you use Cool Whip, I do not know how long it will last, so if you are making it the day before an event, this might not function. Best to make a test first.

"A delightful orange frosting is the secret to this cake from Kathleen Gingras of Thorold, Ontario. 'It is great with a scoop of ice cream,' she suggests."
Original recipe yield: 12 servings
PREP TIME 25 Min
COOK TIME 30 Min
READY IN 55 Min
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the orange juice, water, orange peel and almond extract; mix well. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture. Beat for 2 minutes. Pour into a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
For the frosting, combine the confectioners' sugar, butter and enough orange juice to achieve spreading consistency. Frost cake. (10/09/2006)
