Citrus Cake from a Mix

Makes: 1 Cake

Description: Add your favority flavor jello gelatin to the mix and juice for a light, sunny and delicious take on boxed cake mix.

1 box  white cake mix
2 small box  sugar free jello gelatin or 1 large box
2/3 c  vegetable or canola oil
1 c  juice to match the jello flavor
2 tsp  extract (optional)
4 large  eggs
1/2 c  garnish such as nuts, candied fruit peels, skittles, edible flowers (optional)
1 can  white frosting

Instructions: Spray your pan with Pam or Crisco Baking (not Cooking) Spray or otherwise butter and flour it.
Mix first 5 ingredients 3 minutes with electric mixer on medium. Scrap down sides if necessary.
Add eggs one at a time and mix well, approx 3minutes on medium.
Pour into baking pan, and bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes.

Cool in pan 30minutes then turn onto rack to complete cooling.
Traditionally frost the cake or make a glaze as follows:

Place frosting in microwavable bowl or measuring cup with spout. Microwave in 30 second increments until very thin. Drizzle over completely cooled cake. You can add flavor to the glaze by adding 3-5 tsp extract or 6 - 8 tsp juice and mixing well before pouring over cake. Let glaze dry then garnish with your choice of toppings.

I made this cake in orange flavor for Easter 2012 and it was a huge hit decorated with jelly beans. I'm looking forward to making a 4th of July in strawbeery and Halloween in lime. If your grocer has a Latin foods aisle I recommend using Goya brand canned juices and nectars. The flavors are much more intense that any in the standard juice aisle.
