I use a recipe similar to this, except I use Yellow cake mix w/ pudding in the mix. And I use 1 C Tropicana Orange Juice with lotsa pulp. Everyone loves it! You can't go wrong with this recipe.

I didn't follow the recipe exactly because I thought 4 teaspoons of vanilla sounded like too much, so I used one teaspoon of vanilla and one teaspoon of lemon extract. I thought the cake was delicious, but I am the only one who ate it. Maybe there were too many other goodies around during Christmas, but it simply did not appeal to the rest of my family. I would make it again and just bring it to my office to share.

I'm a pretty good cook, but my baking skills are remedial at best. I was looking for an easy good cake, and this delivered! This is a lightweigt, fluffy, yet very moist cake that was very easy to make. I used chocolate cake mix with the orange gelatin, simply becuase I like the taste of chocolate and orange together. Next time, I might use orange extract in place of the vanilla to intensify the orange flavor, but that's just personal preference. Great recipe... Thanks!
