Source of Recipe
List of Ingredients
1 box (2 layer) orange cake mix
1/3 cup oil (I use canola)
1 small box orange gelatin
1-1/4 cups water
1 teaspoon orange extract
Frosting (recipe follows)
In large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and beat at medium speed of mixer for 2 full minutes. Pour into greased and floured 9-by-13 inch pan. Bake as directed on cake package. Cool completely.
In large bowl, blend until well mixed:
8-ounce carton sour cream
12-ounce package coconut.
In smaller bowl, stir together until well blended:
11/4 cups sugar
1/2 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
Fold into coconut mixture. Fold in 8-ounce carton whipped topping. Spread evenly over cooled cake.
Note: Can't find an orange cake mix, use a white cake mix and instead of water use orange juice or orange soda. Don't like coconut, use 2 (11-ounce) cans mandarin oranges instead.
