Does Betty Crocker do a 'chocolate orange' flavour cake mix?

Hello everyone, I think I might have to go to Specsavers!

I've just been to Morrisons where I thought I'd seen a Betty Crocker choc orange flavour cake mix ... couldn't find it so went to Sainsburys. Not there either.

Have I imagined it?

Buy chocolate cake and add orange juice

I would add to Grannylyn’s post to add a little of the orange zest to enhance the orange flavour. I’ve used lots of Betty Crocker mixes, but I’ve never seen a chocolate orange one.

Grated orange in the mixture then add juice to the filling ?

Thank you everyone. I must have dreamt it, what a waste of diesel!

Why use Betty Crocker make your own. You know what’s in it!

You weren't imagining it mosaic, they do a chocolate and orange cake . According to its sold in Asda, Tesco and Morrisons.

Add the zest of 2 oranges and juice to the batter.
I love BC's devil's food cake mix.
I won a baking competition a few years ago with that cake mix. 😋☺
Caramelise a few thin slices of orange (with rind on) and overlap down centre of a loaf shaped cake or the edge of a round cake on top of home-made vanilla buttercream. Yummy.

Thank you NanaandGrampy! I will search for it online, I did see it at Morrisons, how odd it has gone so quickly and the label removed.

I've bought a Devil mix and will do as you suggest GabriellaG54, thank you. I had a look at Mary Berry's recipe and it's too fiddly, I'm really short of time at the moment. smile
