Easy Orange Cake
Cake mix/pound cake
Easy Orange Cake 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours This is very nice with an
orange butter icing - sweet butter whipped with confectioners' sugar
and orange juice concentrate to which has been added 1 tablespoon of
grated fresh orange rind.
To Cook: Place the cake mix, orange juice, and eggs in a large bowl
and beat by hand 300 times. Add the grated rind for the last round of
beating. Pour the batter into a well- greased-and floured 2-quart
mold or spring-form pan. Place the pan in the slow cooker and cover
with a loosely fitting plate. Cover the pot, but prop the lid open a
fraction with a toothpick or a twist of foil to let excess steam
escape. Cook on High for 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 hours. When a toothpick
inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, the cake is done.
Cool on a rack for 10 minutes before turning the cake out of the pan.
Makes 10 to 12 servings.
