Chocolate Citrus Cake

COOK TIME

There's a splash of citrus flavor in every bite of our colorful and decadent Chocolate Citrus Cake. It starts with a store-bought cake mix that we fancy up with a few simple drops of orange extract and food coloring, to make it bakery fancy.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (18.5-ounce) box chocolate cake mix, batter prepared according to package directions
  • 1 (16-ounce) container white frosting, divided
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract
  • 4 drops red food color
  • 4 drops yellow food color
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat two 8-inch cake pans with cooking spray.
     
  2. Pour cake batter into pans and bake 28 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.
     
  3. Invert one cake onto a serving platter and spread with white frosting. Place second cake right side up onto frosting. 
     
  4. In a small bowl, mix together remaining white frosting, orange extract and red and yellow food colors until frosting is orange. Frost top and sides of cake.
