We did alter this recipe to fit my families needs:
Here's what you'll need:
Butter or Margarine
orange cake mix (was told was seasonal)
1 cup sour cream
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
1 tsp orange extract
zest of one large orange
1 package of orange jello
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 13 by 9 in pan (glass if using metal temp should be 325)
Do not follow package directions when making this cake. Take the cake mix and add the following ingredients to a mixing bowl; 3 eggs, sour cream, vegetable oil,water, orange extract and the zest.
Mix until ingredients are moist and then beat for two minutes scraping sides with spoon. When thoroughly mixed pour into greased pan and bake for 30 minutes or until sides of cake separate from pan.
Once you remove cake from oven you proceed to make holes in the cake. I used a butter knife.
While the cake was in the oven I heated the water for the jello. Take your orange jello and dissolve in 1 cup boiling water and then add 1/2 cup ice cold water once dissolved. Then pour over cake and put cake in the fridge to cool for at least an hour.
For the topping
1 package orange jello
1 package of vanilla pudding mix
1 cup cold whole milk (I used 2 %)
zest of large orange (omitted)
1 tsp orange extract
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
8 oz container of cool whip (used reddi whip)
1 cup cold whipping cream (could not find used heavy)
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
Mix jello and pudding with the milk. Add the zest and the orange extract. Mix until thick then add vanilla extract. Fold the mixture into the cool whip.
In a different bowl add the whipping cream and powdered sugar until stiff. Mine did not get real stiff probably because of the cream. Add this to the whipped cream. Once all mixed pour over top of cake will form a 1/2 inch layer of topping. Decorate with whatever you want I found blood oranges at Wal mart to add to the cake. Refrigerate cake for 2-3 hours. When serving keep cold don't leave out much like an ice cream cake it will melt.
