Orange Butter Cake


Saturday was a super rushing day for me. I had to work from morning till late noon...rushed back and gotta take a quick shower before I took my parents and bb out for dinner. Wait a minute....oh no!!!! Cake??!??! I have not baked a cake on Friday!!! Gosh....

That's it...i have no time to bake everything from scratch....so...my short cut way...ummm...yea...the Pillsburry Butter Cake Mix

Haha....aiya...no time ma..plus hor, this cake mix is really delicious...but a little too sweet for my family though. The cake mix i have has its buttery flavor, however, plain butter cake for dad's birthday? uhh....too plain!!! SO i squeezed an orange to extract its juices and pulps to compliment the flavor of the cake. Quick and Easy!!

Ingredients :
  • 1 packet of Pillburry's Butter Cake Mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter (about 120g)
  • Juice + pulps of an orange + enough water to make 1 cup of orange juice
  • A handful of almond nibbles (optional)
Method:
Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl with a low speed mixer for 2 minutes. Pour batter into a lined baking pan and toss in some almond nibble on the surface of the cake batter. Bake the cake in preheated oven of 175 DC for 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the cake comes out clean

Verdict: Tangy Butter Cake!!!!!!! Pillsburry...never fail us :) MMmmmm Yummy

Look how spongy and moist is the cake...is your saliva dripping now?
