Lemon Orange Cake
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling
Are the layers supposed to be only one inch thick?
The cake was delicious. The frosting recipe, however, is inadequate to cover the cake. I used lemon curd in between the layers, and I still barely had enough to cover the top and sides. make at least 1 1/2 recipes.
Made this cake for my husband's birthday in 1993, & everyone loved it! Haven't made it since because it got lost as more TOH came & I tried those recipes!! :) Came across it today & plan to make it this week. Lots of happy people! Thank you to those of you who tried it in a 9 x 13 pan as I don't want to make a layer cake. One of our sons is coming home for 4th of July & he'll happily take the 8 x 8 cake off my hands!! :) A very refreshing cake for July 4th.
Excellent. Very tall cake as it is 3 layers. Just fit in my cake container. I did need to add a few TBs of milk to the icing in order to smooth the consistency. Will definitely make again.
Okay, I did a few changes and the results were fantastic! I added grated lemon and orange peel to the batter as well as fresh lemon juice instead of the lemon extract. I did not make a 3 layer cake, instead I made a 9x13 and an 8x8 with the recipe. For the frosting, I used only 1 cup of powdered sugar and again used grated orange and lemon peel and fresh lemon and orange juice. I used 1 TBL butter softened and when spread on the warm cake created a glaze rather than a thick frosting. I found this to let the taste of the cake show through rather than the frosting. Yummy!
So good,and is thiferent
