Wow, the holiday season is upon us! Thanksgiving is in a couple days! Everyone is getting ready to party & indulge in yummy foods & desserts, including me 😉 I’m invited to 2 thanksgiving parties this week and i’m planning to make 2 desserts.
First party is today, i’ll be making an easy 3-ingredient clementine bundt cake. For tomorrow’s party, i’ll be making my first-ever new york style cheesecake! Since the cheesecake requires a day to chill, i’ll have to make both desserts today (omg!).
So let’s start with the easy one first:
- 1 box White Cake Mix
- 1 can Diet Orange Soda
- 3 clementines, peeled and cut into small pieces
- In a large bowl, combine dry cake mix, soda and clementines.
- Stir together until well mixed.
- Bake in greased Bundt pan, 350 degrees for 35 minutes or test with toothpick for doneness.
So… the cake was easy to make but difficult to pull off. I believe it was too moist, so when i removed it from the bundt pan it kinda just fell apart. It’s really soft & fluffy and doesn’t hold its shape well. It might work better in a regular flat baking pan. I would not recommend the bundt pan for this cake.
Taste-wise it was good; tasted like orange creamsicle. It was light and not overly sweet. I added some chocolate ganache on top to cover up the cracks. I do love the color combination: orange & brown, so appropriate for fall & thanksgiving.
In conclusion, i would try making the soda/cake-mix cake again with different combinations since it does produce a super moist cake, but i would use a regular pan next time.
