Tangerine Orange Cake

Tangerine Orange Cake

Made  times

"This is the same as an Orange Cake with Orange Topping but made with tangerine-orange juice. It's so good, I have to ask my husband to hide it so I won't pig-out on it. Can be made as a Bundt cake or muffins!"

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 10 inch Bundt pan or line a muffin pan with paper cups.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the cake mix and instant pudding. Add the tangerine juice, oil, eggs and lemon extract, mix until well blended. Pour into the prepared pan or pans.
  3. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until the cake springs back to the touch. For cupcakes, bake for 15 to 17 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing from pan to cool completely.
  4. In a small saucepan, combine the remaining tangerine juice, sugar and butter over medium heat. Stir frequently until the mixture is smooth. Drizzle over cooled cake or cupcakes.

I think that the "white sugar" in the frosting was meant to have said powdered sugar.

These muffins are wonderful - light and fruity - i added 2 cups of powdered sugar and 6oz of cream cheese to the glaze and whipped it for two minutes, made a great frosting!

My husband and I just LOVE these as cupcakes. I did have to cook them longer than stated. I cook them at 350 F for about 18-21 minutes. The white sugar was fine. It's a "drizzle", not a fros...

Excellent as cupcakes. A great way to use up the tangerines we recently bought on our way home from Florida. I baked them at 350 for 13 minutes and they came out perfect. I'll definately make...

This cake was a wonderful addition to my dessert files. I served it to a group of our friends and, while I thought it was a bit dry at times, they just loved it. I'll definitely make it again.
