Upside-Down Honey Orange Cake +Cookbook Giveaway!

Do you love cake, oranges and honey? This upside-down honey orange cake is for you! It’s packed with TONS of orange flavor and has orange slices baked right in! This simple and elegant two-layer cake is filled with a simple whipped cream frosting that perfectly complements the cake. This not-so-sweet cake is perfect after dinner or even in the morning with a cup of coffee!

Watch my video recipe for the step-by-step instructions.

If you’ve had a pineapple upside-down cake, this orange cake is the same concept, except with oranges! To add maximum flavor, I add orange marmalade directly into the cake batter. I line the bottom of the pans with thinly sliced fresh oranges and a light drizzle of honey. The orange slices soften in the oven and get baked into the layers, creating a decadent orange cake! I wanted to keep this cake super easy and simple and opted to go with just a single layer of whipped cream between the layers and it works perfectly! I also love to add a bit of whipped cream on the side of each slice! Extra whipped cream never hurt anybody! If you’re making this cake a few days ahead of time for an event, make sure to keep it covered so that the layers don’t dry out!
