Orange Lime Torte

Welcome to the Homemaking Party! We're all having a nice time in Oregon with Mom still---but definitely ready to go back to Daddy and home and routine! Did I tell you Jamie is coming out to visit for a couple weeks? YESSS!! So excited. He'll be here on the 8th.

Today I'm sharing a delicious recipe that I created a couple years ago when I was working with SunnyD. You don't have to use SunnyD for it---use orange juice, if you'd like!

I love anything citrus. From desserts and drinks to lotions and perfumes, the scent and flavor of citrus is one of the best parts of summer time! A couple years ago, I made this delicious Orange Lime Torte with SunnyD. Does anyone remember when it was called Sunny Delight? They had the best commercials. My kids would laugh at me if I called it that. Ha! Maybe I'll do a quiz to see if anyone knows what the "D" stands for...

Anyway... It's easy to put together this refreshing summer torte. In fact, the steps are really similar to my Strawberry Cream Torte. (Ok, I'm really wanting to make both of these again now!!) Start by baking a pound cake in a 15" jelly roll pan. Once it's cooled, turn it upside down, poke holes throughout, then brush SunnyD all over the surface of the cake. Cut into three equal pieces, and set aside.

Mix the filling ingredients, being sure to sprinkle the pudding mix on top of the whipped topping before stirring it all up together. This mixture will be thick.

Spread the filling between layers of cake, and on top of the last layer.

Garnish with citrus zest and sliced fruit for a delicious and beautiful dessert. 

Orange Lime Torte
16 oz. pound cake mix + ingredients to make the cake
1-2 TB lime zest
1 c. SunnyD (or orange juice)
2 TB lemon juice
8 oz. softened cream cheese
1/3 c. milk
12 oz. whipped topping
3.4 oz. instant vanilla pudding mix
orange and lime to garnish

Preheat oven to 350ยบ and line a 15" jelly roll pan with parchment paper.  Prepare cake mix according to the directions on the package, adding in the lime zest, and spread evenly into prepared pan.  Bake about 20-22 minutes, until done and cool completely. Prick the cake all over with a fork and then brush it evenly with SunnyD.  Slice the cake into three equal pieces and set aside. Whisk cream cheese and lemon juice together until smooth, then whisk in milk.  Spoon whipped topping over top of this but don't mix in. Sprinkle with pudding mix and then stir it all up well. Spread the filling between the layers of cake and top of the last layer. Garnish with citrus zest and sliced fruit. This dessert must be refrigerated when it's not being devoured by you and your guests!
