One of my grandmothers ( I call her Nanny) recipes. If you like orange cake you will love this one! Has an orange glaze over top instead of an icing! Delicious!!!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box yellow cake mix
  • 1 (1/3 ounce) orange Jell-O (the small box)
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 3 eggs
  • 34 cup oil
  • 2 teaspoons orange flavoring
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • orange juice (enough to make into glaze consistency)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Dissolve jello in the hot water; let cool, but not thicken.
  3. Mix together cake mix, oil, orange flavoring, 3 eggs. Add the orange jello mixture. Mix well.
  4. Pour into sprayed 9 X 13 inch cake pan and bake at 350 degrees 25-30 minutes or until done.
  5. While cake is baking, combine 2 cups of powdered sugar and enough orange juice to form a glaze. (I'd say 1-3 tablespoons of orange juice). Just make sure you add it slowly!
  6. Pour glaze over cake after removing from the oven.
