Grace Gifts
Soup and Cake

1 Corinthians 10:31 

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God

It's just one of those kind of days when you want to turn on the oven and bake something. 
Happy Thursday, friends....♥
Ok, I love anything orange so this caught my eye right away.
Fresh Orange Cake

Vegetable oil spray
Flour for dusting pan
1 package yellow cake mix with pudding
1 cup fresh orange juice (about 5 oranges or from the carton)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup sugar
1 t. vanilla
4 large eggs

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a Bundt pan with spray and dust it with flour. Shake out excess flour.Set aside.
Place the cake mix, orange juice,oil, sugar, vanilla and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Blend with an electric mixer on low for 1 minute. Stop and scrape down sides, Increase motor speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes more, scraping down sides as you need to. The batter should be thick and well blended. Pour batter into prepared pan and place in oven.

Bake the cake until its golden brown and just starts to pull away from pan. 45 to 47 minutes. Remove pan from oven and let sit for 20 minutes. Run a long sharp knife around the edge of the cake and invert it onto a rack to cool..let cool for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile prepare the glaze.
1 cup powdered sugar
3 T. fresh orange juice
1 t. freshly grated orange zest
Combine into a small bowl and stir with a spoon until well blended.

Place the cake on a platter and drizzle the glaze over the top and let it dribble down the sides and into the middle. Let it set for a while before slicing.

Store this with a cover or cover it with plastic wrap at room temperature for up to a week. Or it can be frozen.
Ok, I didn't make any yummy cakes or desserts but I did make a huge crockpot of hamburger soup.Yummy!
Thank You for the world so sweet

thank You for the birds that sing ♬ ♫

In Jesus Name we pray
