Add some flavor and zing to your dessert with this Original Orange Juice Cake recipe! This cake will be the perfect mixture of refreshing and sweet! 


  • 4 cups of flour (Self Rise – Pillsbury) – ** Important – sift the flour**
  • 2 cups of sugar (granulated)
  • 10 eggs
  • 4 sticks of Margarine (I recommend Imperial)
  • 1 Packet of Orange flavored Jell-O (use the brand name)
  • ¼ cup of vegetable oil
  • 1 cup of Indian River Select Original Orange Juice (you can add more juice if you like, but don’t overdo it)
  • ½ Cup of Orange Marmalade
  • 2 Tbsp. of Vanilla or butter flavor or any flavor of your choice
  • 3 tbsp. of E&J Brandy


  1. In a stand-up mixer whip the margarine until soft, add the 2 cups of sugar whip for 3-4 minutes, add the eggs slowly, add the flour one cup at a time, add the jell-0 powder, add the flavors, marmalade, juice, and lastly the oil. Do not whip too much after adding the flour, once you have the soft batter, you can empty into the baking pans.
  2. Grease the baking pans in advance, use vegetable shortening, then flour for the cake pans also for a thin layer, this will help the cakes come out once baked.
  3. Use 3 – 8” round cake pans and fill them evenly.
  4. Remove from cake pans onto a cooling sheet, refrigerate, and frost with your favorite frosting or the buttercream recipe attached.
