As a busy parent, it’s always nice to have a go-to recipe that can save your life in a chaotic day. This easy orange cake recipe has saved me countless times.

Before finding this recipe, I tried a few orange cake recipes but they all were a bit too dry or not orangey enough for my taste. What I like about this recipe is that the glaze adds just the right amount of moisture to the cake. As a result, you will get a cake that is light, fluffy and very moist. The whole family will love it.
