Marsha's Knockoff Orange Streusel Loaves

I really do enjoy baking for my farmer's market stand in the summertime! 

One of my biggest sellers the last 3 years has been these flavorful 
Orange Streusel Loaves,
using a Duncan Hines orange cake mix as a base. 

Lo and behold - they stopped making Orange cake mixes this year.


So with the help of my sis-in-love, we came up with a recipe that comes
VERY close to the original. 

This moist and tasty bread has a creamsicle flavor and the streusel on top just makes it even better!  If you can imagine!

Pour the coffee or tea and enjoy!

The orange color is perfect for this time of year!!  

These freeze great - just wrap tightly in saran wrap in pop into a ziploc
freezer bag - label the bag and you're ready for drop in company!! 

Or Thanksgiving!! 

I recently took a small loaf to a friend...she texted me when she got
home and said she just told her hubby he'd better eat some before
she ate the whole thing!!  

Yes, it's that good!! 



1 box (16 ozs.) yellow cake mix 
1 sm. box (4-serv. size) instant lemon pudding mix
3 Tb. orange jello, dry
4 large eggs
1 c. sour cream
1/3 c. vegetable oil 
1 tsp. orange extract, optional 

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour 2 - 9" X 5" loaf pans.  

In a large bowl, combine all cake ingredients (reserving 2 Tb. cake mix for streusel). Beat for 3 minutes at medium speed.  Pour into prepared pans. 
(Batter will be very thick). Sprinkle evenly with streusel, lightly pressing into the batter (I use the backs of my fingers). Bake 45 - 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out mostly clean. Cool in pans for about 10 minutes; loosen loaves, invert onto cooling rack.  Cool completely.  

Top with a powdered sugar/orange juice glaze if desired. 
(If freezing...add glaze after loaves are thawed)

If making 5" loaves, bake about 33 minutes. 


2 Tb. dry cake mix
3 Tb. all purpose flour
2 Tb. brown sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon 
1 Tb. butter, softened 
1/2 c. finely chopped pecans, optional

In a small bowl, combine cake mix, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter; mix with a fork until blended; add pecans; set aside.
