Orange Dream Cake

Orange Dream Cake

"We tried to save room for a big slice of this pretty cake. The flavor of orange and lemon really comes through. With a heavenly whipped cream frosting, this cake is a delightful end to a terrific meal. -Willa Govoro, St. Clair, Missouri"

  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add juices and peel; mix well (mixture may appear curdled). Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift flour with baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Pour into two greased and floured 8-inch cake pans. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Spread between cake layers and over the top. Sprinkle with remaining orange peel. Chill for at least 1 hour. Store in the refrigerator.

This recipe was a hit!! A very moist cake with tons of flavor. I added a little bit of almond flavoring to the whipping cream and it tasted wonderful!
