Honey Orange Cake

A lovely cake made with real honey and orange juice. Made with our Baking & Pancake Mix.



    • 3¼ cups Pamela’s Baking & Pancake Mix (455gr)
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • ½ tsp baking soda
    • ½ tsp salt
    • 1 tsp cinnamon
    • ½ tsp nutmeg
    • 4 large eggs
    • ¾ cup turbinado OR white sugar
    • 1 cup honey
    • ¼ cup vegetable oil
    • ¼ cup applesauce
    • 2 tsp grated orange zest
    • 1 cup orange juice

    Preheat oven to 350°F (175 degrees C). Cut parchment paper to the size of a 10” springform pan, and cover the bottom of the pan. Spray the inside of the pan lightly with non-stick spray.

    In a medium bowl, whisk together the Baking & Pancake Mix, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.

    Separate the eggs. In one bowl, beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks, and set aside. In a large bowl, combine egg yolks, sugar, honey, oil, applesauce and orange zest.

    Into the large bowl, using a whisk or hand beater, alternate adding the flour mixture and orange juice to the wet mixture until completely mixed. Fold the egg whites carefully into the batter, just until ingredients are fully combined.

    Pour batter into prepared pan, and bake in the preheated oven for 60 to 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cake's center comes out with just a few crumbs on it. Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack before carefully removing from pan.

    Sprinkle with powdered sugar or frost with your favorite frosting. Cut into 12 slices of cake.

    Chef’s Note: This is wonderful with macerated fresh fruit and whipped cream.

This cake was moist and delicious! We sprinkled confectioner's sugar on it and garnished it with wedges of cara cara oranges. It was beautiful and festive for a graduation party!


Why put the baking soda and salt? The baking mix already accounts for these.


I decreased the sugar and honey and didn't have any applesauce on hand, so I added a 1/6 tsp of xanthum gum and 1/4 tsp cream of tartar. Also I threw in vanilla yogurt to make up for the applesauce volume.

I'm riskin' it all! Lol Also I had to use an egg replacer. :0

I hope it's not ruined :(

oh and I threw in some oats.

60 minutes later....

Mmmmmm good but all over the pan.


I decreased the sugar by a quarter and the honey as well and recommend doing this as the cake turned out great, especially if you'll be putting a sweet icing/powdered sugar.
