Oh, I’m so glad you dropped by! I’ve been baking and have a wonderful treat to share with you today. I made a Southern Lady Cake and it’s one of my family’s favorite cakes.
I’ve been making this cake for several years now after finding the recipe in an issue of Southern Lady magazine. The recipe was created as a tribute to the magazine by a lady in Atlanta known as the “Cake Lady”. It’s moist, has a wonderful texture and is so delicious with a delicate orange flavor. Don’t be tempted to skip adding the glaze…it puts this cake right over the top!
Psst…if you don’t tell anyone it’s made from a mix, they’ll never know it!
1 box orange supreme cake mix
1/3 c sugar
2 T all purpose flour
1 c sour cream
2/3 c oil
1/2 t orange extract
11 oz can mandarin oranges, drained
2 T orange juice
1 c confectioner’s sugar
Grease and flour a tube cake pan. Combine the cake mix, sugar and flour in a large bowl. Add the sour cream, the oil and orange extract. Mix at low speed with a mixer. Add the eggs, one at a time. Increase the speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes. Add in the mandarin oranges and mix until all ingredients are well combined. Pour the batter into the prepared tube pan. Bake at 350°F for 45-50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the cake comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Combine the orange juice and confectioners sugar well. Drizzle over the cake.
The original recipe called for baking 45-50 minutes, but it always takes longer to bake when I make this. I usually end up having to bake it for about 1 hour before it’s done.
Thanks for visiting with me today! I’m joining these parties…
