Orange Cake

If a creamsicle were a cake, it’d be this one.

From a box sold in East Moline, Illinois.

    So is there no oil or butter needed in this recipe?

    • That’s correct–I’ll add it to the post shortly but I verified the recipe matches what was published in the Sept. 1, 1981 The (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) Gazette and May 16, 1979 The (Sioux Falls, South Dakota) Argus-Leader.
