Add orange juice instead of water to turn ordinary boxed cake mix into a moist, fresh tasting dessert! This recipe is for light color cake mixes; golden, white or lemon. I have never tried it with chocolate mix as I have always thought orange juice would reduce the richness of the chocolate. Makes a nice, moist cake that is light and delicious.

Just made this for unexpected guests. Used Betty Crocker Vanilla cake and instead of orange juice a can of apple pie filling (we don;t like orange flavouring). It was great, moist and very tasty - sprinkled icing sugar on the top.
