Lemon Orange Cake

Lemon Orange Cake

"I love to bake this lovely three-layer cake instead of a more traditional pie for Thanksgiving. It has that tangy Florida citrus flavor and isn't any more difficult to make than a two-layer cake."

  1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Beat well after each addition. Stir in extracts.
  2. Pour into three greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans. Bake at 350 degrees F 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. For frosting, in a mixing bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy. Add the orange juice, lemon juice, peels and extract; beat until well blended. Gradually add confectioners' sugar, beating until frosting reaches desired spreading consistency. Spread frosting between layers and over top and sides of cake.

I only tried the frosting and it was a little too citrusy for me, but if you really like that you may love this.

Easy and delicious cake. I replaced the shortening with applesauce and added 1 tsp. lemon zest because I didn't have any lemon extract. I baked the cake in a 9x13 pan and left out the frosting.

I didn't make the cake, I just used the frosting to top a white cake with lemon filling, but the frosting was sensational! I definitely recommend it :)

Tangy Florida citrus flavor is right! This cake isn't really sweet like other recipes I've had before, but for me, the change was very refreshing! However, if you're looking for a sweet cake, I ...

Frosting was delicious! We didn't make the cake because I wanted to use up my last box of lemon cake mix before creating my "all-scratch" pantry, so we used the box mix and then topped with the...

This is a delightful little cake! (Didn't make the frosting.) I was looking for a good lemon cake recipe, and I've definitely found it. Because I like lemon (a lot) I doubled the lemon extrac...

Quote from a kid who ate this yesterday: "If this cake were in a contest it would win!" (no prompting). It was at my son's 8th birthday party and the kids & adults all loved it. I overmixed the...
