Something a little different to try! Super moist and light and fluffy, this Orange Juice Cake will be a hit at your next gathering!

Ingredients (makes 1 cake)

  • 1 box Plain Vanilla Cake mix (I used the home brand)
  • 1 packet Orange jelly
  • 3/4 cup Vegetable oil
  • 1 cup Fresh orange juice
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 TBS Orange zest


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C and line a cake pan (I used a springform pan) with baking paper
  2. Combine the Cake Mix, Jelly, Oil, Orange Juice, zest and Eggs in a mixing bowl, and beat for 2 minutes. Make sure the sides are scraped down to incorporate all the mix scraping the bowl regularly.
  3. If the mixture is too runny, add in the extra ¼ cup of SR flour and thoroughly mix it in to combine.
  4. Pour batter into the prepared tin and bake 40- 55 minutes or until springy when you touch the cake. If cake starts to brown too much on the top while cooking, lightly cover with alfoil to stop this.
  5. Remove from the oven – let stand 5 minutes then turn out onto a cooling rack to cool completely
  6. You can make a glaze for this cake using 1 cup Icing Sugar and 2 TB Fresh Orange Juice mixed together, or just dust with icing sugar

  • This sounds so easy to make. I’ll definitely have to try this and hope mine looks just as good.


  • Sounds easy and tasty


  • Sounds a very interesting cake. Thanks for sharing.


  • sounds interesting, might have to give this one a go!


  • Thinking could use other juices and jellies.


  • The jelly has me thinking. Wondering if I can use a sugar free jelly be worth a try.


  • Looks so moist! Having a packet of jelly in it is odd and must up the sugar content heaps but I’d try it just to see what it’s like.

    • It does indeed look moist and I am intrigued by the jelly in the cake – going to make it and try it.

      • You could try using Aeroplane Lite Jelly. It either has no sugar or very little. It doesn’t taste sweet.


  • I am intrigued by the orange jelly ingredient used in this cake.
    A yummy looking orange cake.
