 Servings 16


  1. 1 box of  White Cake Mix
  2. 4 egg whites (2/3 cup)
  3. 1 cup of water
  4. 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce
  5. 1/3 cup of Fresh squeezed squeezed Cara Cara Orange juice (about 1 1/2 oranges)
  6. Mix above ingredients until smooth and free of lumps.
  7. Cut 8 slices from 1 Cara Cara Orange, chop up remaining orange into small chunks for batter. You can remove the pith (white stuff) if you like, makes no difference, I use a knife to remove the peel from the orange so I had very little pith left.
  8. Preheat oven 350 degrees, Grease Bundt pan generously then lightly dust with flour. Place the 8 slices of orange, skinnier side up fat side down, evenly spaced around bottom of pan.
  9. Fold orange chunks into batter. Using a scoop or small measuring cup, fill the space between the orange slices in the pan with batter , this will help stabilize them when you pour the rest of the batter in, (learned that the hard way)now add the rest of your batter, you can use a scoop or gently pour it in.
  10. Bake 38-43 minutes. Remove when inserted skewer comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 20 minutes. Place cake plate of choice over bundt pan, lift and flip, cake should release from bundt and end up on cake plate.
  11. Let cool, dust with 2 tsps. of powdered sugar.
  12. A flour duster is a great way to dust powdered sugar- 2 tsps. is all I used on this and some of it melted away, so there’s more than you can see – get the flour duster here.
