(18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
(4 serving-size) package orange flavored gelatin
cup vegetable oil
cup orange juice
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat a 10-inch Bundt or tube pan with cooking spray; set aside. In a medium bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat all ingredients 2 minutes, or until well mixed. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 50 to 55 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool slightly, then invert onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve, or cover until ready to serve. Top with a glaze made of 1 cup confectioners' sugar mixed with 2 tablespoons orange juice then top with the zest of 1 orange for a special touch. Make a Strawberry Cake: Basically follow the above recipe with Strawberry Cake Mix and strawberry gelatin. Instead of the 1 cup of orange juice, substitute 1 tub of frozen strawberries. Thaw, saving the juice. Dice the strawberries. I add water, if needed to make 1 cup of juice, PLUS 2 T for the glaze. Add the diced strawberries to the batter and cook as directed. Make the glaze as suggested above.
