    Default REC: Easy and Quick Yummy Cake

    I think this took me about 5 minutes to measure, mix, and get into
    the pan, then the oven.

    Recipe from allrecipes.com submitted by SNOWWHITE34.

    Yellow Cake

    1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 cups granulated sugar
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    4 eggs
    1 cup Canola oil
    3/4 cup orange juice*
    2 teaspoons orange zest (my addition)
    2 teaspooons vanilla extract

    Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan.

    In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, and baking powder.
    Make a well in the center and pour in the eggs, oil, orange, juice,
    orange zest, and vanilla. Mix well with whisk and pour into prepared
    pan.

    Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick
    inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.

    I used the following frosting...

    1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
    3 cups confectioners sugar
    2 teaspoons orange zest
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2-3 tablespoons orange juice*

    Cream butter. Gradually add remaining ingredients, beating until
    mixture is creamy and spreadable. Spread evenly over top of cake.

    *NOTE: The only orange juice I had on hand was the "Simply Orange"
    brand orange juice with pineapple. It gave the cake and frosting a
    really nice flavor.

    I love such recipes. Why use a mix?

    I rarely ever do. There is one cake I bake that includes a "lemon
    supreme" cake mix in the list of ingredients, but there are a lot of
    additions. Can't remember when I've used any other mix.

    That's what he had on hand, so he used it.

    sf, I think Jean meant, "why use a cake mix", since this and many
    other recipes are so simple to make.

    No, the point was that he didn't use a mix, and this cake recipe
    looks very easy (if that is what one wants). I am increasingly
    interested in easy recipes, having given up my lengthy kitchen
    puttering long ago.

    Uncomplicated recipes with relatively few ingredients? Me too.

    I know, but that was the point Jean was making... IOW, with such
    simple recipes like this one available, why would one opt for a box mix
    instead.

    I don't mind a lot of ingredients. I just don't want to spend my
    life in the kitchen. I had some epiphanies a few years ago....

    Amen to that.

    I'll try this one out soon. Easy and I'll bet it's great. Thanks much!!

    The easy pita bread recipe posted a few weeks ago on here turned out
    great.

    Gracias, to all who post these.
