It was Bunneh’s birthday a couple of weeks ago and my day was…how do i gently say…crazy!!! So I knew I needed a cake, but there just seemed to be no time. I couldn’t fail the bunneh though, so I went for simple, but ever so tasty. I’ve talked about Cheater Chocolate Cake before and this is a yummy adjustment on that recipe for a fresh but decadent cake.
Easy Chocolate Orange Cake
1 box devil’s food cake (I like Duncan Hines or Pillsbury)
1 9×13 sized dark brownie mix
zest of one orange
juice of one orange
Combing cake mix and brownie mix in a large bowl. Follow the recipe on the back of each box adding 1/2 cup Ultra Gel to the dry mix and substituting the fresh juice for some of the water. IE: If the total in the recipe is 1 1/2 cups water and you got 1/2 cup orange juice, add 1 cup water and 1/2 cup juice. Fold zest in last before pouring batter into a greased and floured 9×13 dripper pan. Bake until tests done. Serve with favorite chocolate frosting. In my case I made a Ultra Gel chocolate whipped cream and added more orange zest to that!
Decorate with candles only if husband is under forty….
