Orange and Yogurt Cake with
Cinnamon Streusel Swirl and Walnuts

This is a super delicious cake, and is a good choice if you have some yellow cake mix around the house. It is fruity and moist and unbelievably good.



  • 1 (18 1/2 ounce) package yellow cake mix
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 cup unflavored yogurt
  • 1 medium orange, ground (use the juice, peel and fruit, about 6 tablespoons in all)
  • 3 eggs

Cinnamon Streusel

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts


  1. Beat together first 5 ingredients for 4 minutes or until batter is light.
  2. To make the streusel, mix together sugar, flour, butter and cinnamon until blended.
  3. Spread half the batter in a greased 10-inch tube pan.
  4. Sprinkle with Cinnamon Streusel and cover with remaining batter. With a knife or spatula, cut into batter at 2-inch intervals.
  5. Sprinkle top with walnuts and press them lightly into the batter.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 45 to 50 minutes, or until top is browned and a cake tester, inserted in center, comes out clean.
  7. When cool, remove from pan and sprinkle top with sifted powdered sugar.

Serves 8 to 10.
