This is a very light, moist cake....great for summer. The recipe came from Southern Lady magazine. I baked one last night to take to Sunday School this morning....4 pieces are already gone and we haven't left the house yet. Make this one a day before you need's better the second day. If you can't find an orange cake mix, use white or yellow and increase the extract to 1 tsp. You can also use more mandarin oranges if you like.


1 box
duncan hines orange supreme cake mix
1/3 c
2 Tbsp
all purpose flour
1 c
sour cream
2/3 c
vegetable oil
1/2 tsp
orange extract
1 can(s)
mandarin oranges, drained (11 oz)
2 Tbsp
orange juice
1 c
confectioners' sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease and flour a tube cake pan. Or you can spray the pan with vegetable oil spray.
Combine the cake mix, sugar and flour in a large bowl.
Add the sour cream, oil, and orange extract. Mix at low speed with a mixer until combined.
Add the eggs, one at a time.
Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes.
Add in the mandarin oranges and mix on low speed until all ingredients are well combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 - 50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the cake comes out clean.
Let the cake cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Remove the cake from the pan and let it finish cooling on a wire rack.
Combine the orange juice and confectioner's sugar until the mixture is smooth. Drizzle this glaze over the cake.

Linda, the cake looks delish. I'd like to make it soon. Like for company, because I can't eat much of it. I'm diabetic. I also wanted to say I like your NC picture. I makes me want to be there. My husband's sister & brother-in-law used to have a house in the mountains. We went there a few times; have some nice memories. Also, our son & his girlfriend went there for a little relaxation, & he proposed, on a nearby mountain (Bald Mtn.). The owners-s&b sold the house a few years ago. I guess the main reason was because everyone wanted to go to the beach more these days.
