Anybody have a good recipe for an orange cake? Planning on using it for my wedding this weekend with a vanilla buttercream so I need it pretty fast. <G>
I have the one from the Whimsical Bakehouse. If you'd like to try it, pm me.
Do you have a vanilla/yellow cake recipe that you like? You can just use that, but add 2-3 teaspoons of orange extract, and grated orange zest. I also replace some of the liquid with Gran Marnier liquor (a couple of tablespoons worth).
I also add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon to orange cake - it makes it really "pop" for me.
there are some nice orange cake recipes in the recipe file that you could try
I use this recipe:
but I replace the vanilla with orange extract and fold in orange zest from one orange at the end. Very very good! And paired with vanilla bc, it's tastes like a creamsicle!!
Thanks but karateka sent me the WBC recipe earlier and I'm working on it. Gives me a chance to kill 2 birds with one stone. I get my orange cake & a chance to check out one of the recipes. I've gotten real interested in it since reading on here. For sure if I like the cake, it'll be moved up to the top of my priority list. <G>
Actually what got me started was somebody talking about doing the cake with vanilla icing & how it had reminded them of a creamsicle. Sounded awfully good & a bit different to me. Been doing chocolate cakes like crazy & I'm ready for a change.
Hi sugarycreations, i'm also interested in the recipes from Whimsical Bakehouse and always wondered if they are as fantastic as everyone says they are Do let us know how the cake turned out
OH YES!! Based on that recipe, the book is well worth buying. I checked it out on Amazon & the random page search button pulled up a chart that gave detailed directions for obtaining a variety of colors. Obviously it has some useful tips in it also. I'm definitely buying it.
Had some batter left over I made cupcakes out of so have already sampled the cake--plain & iced. <G> It is really good.
