Ingredients:

  • 1 package white cake mix
  • 1 ¼ cups water
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 1 teaspoon orange or lemon extract

Browned Butter Frosting:

  • ½ cup butter
  • 3 ½ to 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 2/3 cups apricot preserves

In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, water, egg whites, oil, orange peel and extract; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on high speed for 2 minutes. Pour into two greased and floured 9 inch round baking pans.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

For frosting, in a small heavy saucepan, cook butter over medium heat for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown. Pour into a large bowl; beat in confectioners’ sugar and orange juice.

Cut each cake horizontally into two layers. Place bottom layer on a serving plate; spread with half of the apricot preserves. Top with a second layer; spread with ½ frosting. Top with a third layer; spread with remaining apricot preserves. Top with the remaining layer. Frost top and sides of cake with remaining frosting. Decorate as desired.

Yield: 12 servings.
