First off, I’m excited to be working with the Florida Department of Citrus to bring you a couple of Florida orange juice recipes! I love Florida orange juice and drink it practically every day!

I love tres leches cakes…so I thought I would combine it with my love of Florida orange juice. And it turned out amazingly! Adding citrus to it…kicks it up another notch!

You’ll want a slice of cake and another. 🙂

Sift the flour and baking powder and set aside.

I creamed the butter and the sugar together and then add eggs and vanilla extract…mix with an electric hand mixer.

I baked the cake with Florida orange juice!

Pour it in to the batter and then mix.

Then, add the flour mixture and mix with a rubber spatula.

After the milk mixture cools, pour in the Florida orange juice and mix.

Pour the milk & orange juice mixture into the cake.

All done. Now let it soak on your kitchen counter for at least 45 minutes to an hour.

After the liquid has soaked into the cake for 45 minutes. Don’t skip this step because the cake needs to soak it all in at room temperature.

Whipped cream topping is all done!

I use an angled spatula to spread the whipped cream on top of the cake.

The cake is so pretty!

Look at that cake! I hope you make it for family and friends soon!
