Lil' Orange Cakes

Yum

It's Friday and I am feeling good!
Nothing like putting a spring back in your step when you know the end of the week is here.
If the day of the week won't put a smile on your face, then these Lil' Orange Cakes sure will!


These pretty lil' cakes have lots of orange flavor drizzled with a citrus icing and orange zest.
They'll brighten anyone's day...even on a Monday or during a blizzard!


Brew up a pot of tea and sit down with a lil' cake.  Any worries will disappear and smiles will appear.
Light and fresh...just bursting with sunshine!


Ingredients to make 1 1/2 dozen:
1 box vanilla cake mix
1 pkg instant vanilla pudding
3 large eggs
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup water
nonstick spray
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp orange zest
6 tsp orange juice
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray a mini bundt or muffin pan with nonstick spray.  In a large bowl, mix cake mix, vanilla pudding, eggs, sour cream, orange juice and water until all ingredients are combined.  Spoon batter into a prepared mini bundt or muffin pan about 1/2 full.  Bake for 17-18 minutes.  Remove pan from oven and let cakes sit in pan for 5 minutes.  Take cakes out of pan and place on a wire rack to cool.  Meanwhile, mix powdered sugar, orange juice and orange zest.  Drizzle over cooled cakes.



For those of you experiencing the blizzard in the northeast...I feel for ya.  Been there...done that.
Bake some Lil' Orange Cakes to bring on the sun and melt some of that snow.  And for the rest of us?  Just take the time to celebrate the end of the week!

Have a great weekend and I'll be back on Monday!
