  • 1 box 15.2 oz Pillsbury Orange Creamsicle flavored cake mix
  • 1 cup Pillsbury's Best flour or White Lily stir well or weigh before measuring (4.5 oz)**
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray two 9 inch round cake pans with sides THAT ARE AT LEAST 2 inches high, with flour-added baking spray.
  • Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir to mix. With an electric mixer, beat for a full minute, scraping sides of bowl well.
  • Divide batter evenly among pans (if you have a scale, you should weigh about 25 oz in each pan).
  • Bake for 30 minutes on center rack or until cakes test done. Let cool in pans for 10 minutes, then carefully invert. Let cool completely.
  • Note: I used White Lily and it worked perfectly, but any all-purpose flour should be fine.
