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.

  • 1/2 cup margarine or butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 orange peel, grated
  • juice from 1 orange
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. orange juice


Cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Blend in the juice from orange and grated orange peel. Add flour and baking powder. Blend to make a smooth batter. Pour into a buttered and floured 8 inch bundt cake pan. (If you do not have a pan that small, double the recipe). Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes. When thoroughly baked, remove from oven and turn upside down to cool. (Three tin cans of the same size could be used to support it. When cake is cool, turn out of pan onto serving dish. Mix powdered sugar and orange juice to make glaze and pour over cake.

I am looking for a recipe for a Orange cake. I remember it was made without a mix and took a can of orange juice concentrate. It also had a seven minute frosting.

Thank you,

Orange Cake Recipe

Orange Cake

SUBMITTED BY: Kathleen Gingras

"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



  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons orange peel
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 1/4 cups cake flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • 1 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice

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)
