Orange Cake From Yellow Cake Mix

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 From Yellow Cake Mix

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: 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.

  • 1 pkg of white cake mix
  • 1 1/4 cup of Sunkist orange soda

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs whites

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.

Cake Mix Cookies:

  • 1 box Duncan Hines orange cake mix
  • 2 eggs slightly beaten
  • 1 stick of butter softened
  • Stir in 1 pkg of white baking chips

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)

I have used a similar recipe for "cake mix cookies" with a wild variety of cake mixes and brownie mixes. This is a really easy way to make a humongeous amount of cookies for something like a church bazaar. I use 1 large egg and 1 stick of softened butter with any kind of cake/brownie mix. As I am mixing in the butter/egg I also add whatever I think would taste good in that flavor cookie... chocolate chips, nuts, nutmeg, mint chips, etc. etc. I drop them and flatten with a glass dipped in sugar on 12" pizza sheets which I have covered with "non-stick" foil and bake @ 400° for 20 minutes in my large toaster oven. The foil can be used for many batches since the cookies just slide off. I wipe it off with a paper towel before I put the pans away for use next time.
