This is a really easy cake to make with lots of flavor. It is made from a yellow cake mix, orange jello, orange juice and one square of bakers semi sweet chocolate. Chocolate and orange are natural complimenting flavors. This past month I have found cake mixes on sale and have stocked up on them because you can’t make them from scratch at the price I have been buying the mix at. This is a cake I like to do for Halloween but with the hot weather this is a nice treat with ice cream or ice tea. The cake was sprinkled with sugar glitter and the white specks in the picture is the reflection off of the sugar glitter. My grand daughter calls it fairy dust because it is light little flakes not like colored sugar sprinkles.
Orange Chocolate Bundt Cake
Preheat oven 350 degrees. Spray bundt pan with Baker’s Joy spray .
- 1 package yellow cake mix
- 1 (3 oz.) package orange jello
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 square semi sweet baker’s chocolate melted
Mix all ingredients but chocolate. Beat the orange batter for 2 minutes. Mix one cup of batter in a small bowl with melted chocolate. Pour some orange batter in the bottom of bundt pan, then make a well with the back of a spoon all the way around to put the chocolate batter in. Spoon chocolate batter into well and top with the rest of the orange batter. Tap the bundt pan on the counter a few times so the bubbles will come to the top and the batter will settle in the bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean. Wait about 5 to 10 minutes to remove cake from pan. Dust with powder sugar or sugar glitter. Cool before cutting.
I put some orange food coloring into this cake mix to make it darker orange. I wasn’t sure how it would photograph. I usually use the orange food coloring for Halloween and use a different bundt pan to make it spooky. Enjoy.
