Orange Poppy Seed Cake Recipe

Orange Poppy Seed Cake Recipe

I used orange juice concentrate instead of oil in a poppy seed cake recipe to come up with this terrific dessert. We enjoy moist slices during the holidays and throughout the year.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling YIELD:14 servings


  • 1 package (18-1/4 ounces) yellow cake mix
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 1 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 3/4 cup egg substitute
  • 1 can (6 ounces) frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • GLAZE:
  • 1-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free milk
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix and poppy seeds. In a small mixing bowl, combine the sour cream, egg substitute, orange juice concentrate, water and almond extract; beat until smooth. Stir into cake mix just until combined. Coat a 10-in. fluted tube pan with cooking spray. Combine the sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle evenly in pan. Pour batter into pan.
  • 2. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over cooled cake. Yield: 14 servings.
