If you are needing an easy and full of flavor cake you will want to try this Creamsicle Cake Recipe. My family is all huge fans of Creamsicles! I shared our homemade Creamsicle Recipe with you a couple weeks ago. After enjoying a few of those the hubby suggested that I attempt to make a Creamsicle Cake for our dish to pass at a picnic we were attending. It sounded yummy and perfect so… I whipped one up.
Creamsicle Cake Recipe
Everyone enjoyed the Creamsicle Cake. As a matter of fact…I couldn’t keep the hubby from going back for seconds. Oranges and Cream are a perfect combination and PERFECT in cake form. I like the fact that this cake was simple and reminded me of the poke cakes my grandmother always makes for our family picnics.
Like most cakes, I started with a Cake Mix. It just seems so much easier than hauling out all the different ingredients for a cake. Plus we usually score a nice deal with coupons on cake mixes. My pantry has quite a few at all times. I added in some orange juice and orange Jell-O to create the yummy orange flavor.
1 White Cake Mix
1/3 cup Oil
1 cup Orange Juice
1 package Orange Jell-O
1/2 cup boiling Water
1/2 cup cold Water
1 package Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
1 cup Milk
1 tsp Vanilla
8 oz Cool Whip
Preheat oven to 350.
Spray a 13×9 pan with non stick spray.
Prepare cake mix as directed on package, using eggs, orange juice (instead of water) and oil.
Pour into prepared pan.
Bake for 30-40 minutes until cake springs back when touched.
Allow cake completely cool.
Using a skewer, poke small holes all over the cake, piercing all the way to bottom.
In a bowl, combine Jell-O and boiling water and stir until gelatin is completely dissolved.
Add cold water, mix well and slowly pour this mixture over the entire cake.
Cover and chill for 2 hours.
Combine the pudding mix, milk and vanilla and beat well.
Fold Cool Whip into the pudding mixture and use it to frost cake.
Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours.
