Pineapple Orange Cake

Ingredients: – 1 box (15.25 oz) yellow cake mix – 1 cup pineapple juice – 1/2 cup vegetable oil – 3 large egg – Zest of 1 orange

For the Glaze: – 1 cup powdered sugar – 2-3 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice – 1/2 cup crushed pineapple, drained

Preheat your oven to 350°F and prepare a 9x13 inch baking pan by greasing and flouring it for easy cake release.

In a large mixing bowl, blend together the yellow cake mix, pineapple juice, oil, eggs, and orange zest until the batter is smooth.

Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan, ensuring even distribution.

Bake the cake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

While the cake bakes, prepare the glaze by mixing powdered sugar and orange juice, then stir in crushed pineapple for added flavor.

Once the cake is done, poke holes all over its warm surface to allow the glaze to penetrate.

Pour the prepared glaze over the warm cake, spreading it evenly.  Optionally, garnish the cake with orange slices and cherries for a decorative touch.

Slice and serve your Pineapple Orange Cake, delighting in its moist, citrusy goodness with every bite!
