Simply Orange®
Chocolate Cake Recipe

Surprise the family with a recipe that’s sinfully simple yet deliciously decadent. Bake a rich chocolate cake drizzled with a Simply Orange glaze.


  • Simply Orange (to substitute for water), plus 1/3 cup more for icing
  • Vegetable oil cooking spray
  • 2 (18.2 oz) boxes fudge brownie mix
  • Large eggs (per brownie mix instructions)
  • Vegetable oil (per brownie mix instructions)
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, coarsely chopped, plus more for decoration
  • One pound (about 5 cups) powdered sugar
  • Decorative chocolate curls (optional)
  • Candied orange peels (optional)


    Prepare Cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray the bottom of a 9-inch round cake pan; set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or using a hand mixer in a large bowl) add brownie mix.
  3. Follow package directions; substituting the water in the recipe with Simply Orange (remember to double all of the ingredients, as you are using two boxes of brownie mix.); once the batter is well blended, stir in the almonds.
  4. Pour into prepared pan, and bake until top is cracked and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 60 to 75 minutes. Cool cake in pan on wire rack. Run a sharp knife around the inside edge of the cake pan to loosen the cake before turning out of pan. Turn cake back over in order to glaze.
  5. Glaze Cake:

  6. Combine powdered sugar and 1/3 cup of Simply Orange.
  7. Place cake on a rack set over a rimmed baking sheet.
  8. Drizzle glaze over center of cake, allowing it to drip down sides.
  9. Let glaze set for 2 to 3 hours at room temperature. Glaze will remain gooey. Decorate with chocolate shavings, candied orange peels, and remaining almond slivers if desired.
