Orange Dream Cake

"I got this recipe from It was submitted by "Pauline" I made it for dessert on Christmas day. It is very good! The cake is nice and moist without having an overpowering orange taste. You can use any kind of frosting/icing on this cake or even sprinkle powdered sugar on it. I used a can of Cream Cheese frosting on mine. I made this cake in a bundt cake pan. I do not know how it will turn out in a 9x13x2 inch cake pan or (2) 9 inch round cake pans. Prep and bake times are approximate."

Ready In:
8-10 slices


  • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box orange cake mix
  • 1 (2 3/4 ounce) box orange Jell-O
  • 1 (1 1/2 ounce) envelope Dream Whip
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 large eggs
  • frosting or icing, of choice


  • Preheat oven to 350F (or 175C) Grease and flour a bundt cake pan and set aside.
  • Dump cake mix, jello powder and Dream Whip powder in a large mixing bowl.
  • Stir together until well mixed.
  • Add oil, milk and eggs and mix for 3 minutes with an electric mixer.
  • Pour into prepared bundt cake pan.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes.
  • Insert a toothpick in the center of the cake.
  • When the toothpick comes out clean, the cake is done.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Place a dinner or cake plate, bottom side up, on top of the cake pan.
  • Turn over and lightly shake the pan to help loosen the cake from it.
  • You might be able to feel the cake loosen from the pan.
  • While cake is still warm (but not hot) spread a light layer of the frosting on the side and top of the cake.
  • This will result in a nice glaze effect on the cake.
  • Or you can allow the cake to completely cool and frost it like you would normally frost a cake.

    Nice moist cake!! Makes me think of spring if that makes any sense. Must be the color and orange flavor. I used a 13 x 9 pan and it cooked in about 30-35 minutes.

    This cake was good, I put a pig pickin cake topping on it: cool whip with vanilla pudding mix and a small can of crushed pineapple. But I do think that it was a little too dense and dry.

    Someone brougt this to a church function and it was the best!! It tastes just like a dreamsicle ice cream. MMMMMM!


I just love to cook. I love to experiment with different recipes and love to get new ones. I love to share my recipes and love to have others taste things I make. I baked a lot while I was living at high school. I have babysat for over 33 years for different people I have cooked meals for them when it was needed. At one time, I babysat 2 children in my apartment and cooked dinner for them, their mom and their grandmother. I loved it. I took care of them for a couple of years. The name AuntWoofieWoof has a very special meaning. I babysat for a family with 3 children in their home several years ago. One day the youngest boy came up to me and said "Aunt Woofie Woof......." and proceeded to say what he had to say. He called me that name for 2 days. When I asked him where he got the name from, his reply was "It was on a Dr Suess tape my momma got me at the Library". :lol: I thought it was so cute that I decided to use it on the internet. I babysat for that family for 8 years!! That little boy is now in middle school. I still see him and his family every now and then. His mom and I keep in touch over the phone. I usually spend Thanksgiving Day with them. It is fun watching the kids grow into fine young adults. The oldest daughter, is in her early 20's, is working and has her own place. She is a beautiful young lady. I am a Substitute Playground Supervisor and a Crossing Guard at an Elementary School. I love both jobs. <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="RSC-HiddenGem-part"title="Photo and Video Sharing"/> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" width=90%> . <img src="">
