Dessert Time! Orange Juice Cake with Glaze

Nothing better than a really good dessert to make everything seem okay again. Doesn't matter if it is hot or cold, desserts are wonderful! Most desserts are a part of a meal that can be made ahead of time.

Some are gooey, some are crunchy, there are so many things a dessert can do. Doesn't matter if it is soft, hard, sweet or tart, chewy, silky, fluffy, creamy,light or heavy. Desserts are something you can have at any time of the day or night and they should always put a smile on your face and make you say YUM!

What is your favorite dessert? Do you have many good dessert recipes? Most of us do. I have many wonderful dessert recipes and there are many I have yet to try. Here is a really good and really easy dessert.  I am not sure where this recipes came from, but kudos to whom ever created this wonderful cake.

Orange Juice Cake with Glaze

1-box of yellow cake mix
1-small box of orange gelatin ( I use jello brand)
2/3 C. of oil (canola works well)
2/3 C. water
4 eggs
2/3 C. orange juice ( can have pulp or be pulp free)
1 C. sugar

Combine the cake mix and gelatin powder and mix well. In another mixing bowl, mix the remaining ingredients. Mix cake mixture with the liquid mixture very well. Bake at 350 degrees as directed on the cake mix box. While the cake is baking, make the glaze.

2/3 C. orange juice ( I would suggest pulp free for the glaze)
1 C. powdered sugar
mix orange juice and powdered sugar well until very creamy.
When cake has finished baking and still hot. Poke small holes all over the cake and pour glaze over the cake. Allow the cake to completely cool before serving.
