Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grease 3 (9-inch) round cake pans. Line bottoms with wax paper; grease wax paper, and dust with flour. Tap out excess flour; set pans aside.
  2. Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add 1 1/2 cups sugar, beating well. Stir in orange extract and rind.
  3. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a separate bowl; add to butter mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed until blended after each addition.
  4. Beat egg whites in a separate bowl at high speed with an electric mixer until foamy. Add remaining 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating 2 to 4 minutes or until stiff peaks form and sugar dissolves. Fold one-third of egg white mixture into batter. Gently fold in remaining egg white mixture into batter. Divide batter evenly among prepared pans. Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks 10 minutes; remove from pans, and cool completely on wire racks.
  5. Orange Syrup:
  6. Combine orange juice and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly; boil 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in Triple Sec; let cool.
  7. Orange Filling:
  8. Combine first 3 ingredients in a medium saucepan; stir in orange juice until smooth. Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly; boil 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  9. Beat egg yolks and lemon juice in a small bowl until thick and pale. Gradually stir about one-fourth of hot mixture into yolks; add to remaining hot mixture, stirring constantly. Return pan to medium heat; bring mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly. Simmer 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add butter and orange rind; stir until butter melts. Pour filling into a small bowl; let cool. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or until thoroughly chilled.
  10. Place 1 cake layer on a cake plate, and brush with one-third of Orange Syrup; top with 1/2 cup of Orange Filling. Spoon half of chopped mango over filling. Repeat procedure with next layer. Top with last cake layer, and brush with remaining one-third of syrup. Spread Orange Buttercream Frosting (Recipe #rz.286904) over top and sides of cake. Spoon remaining filling on the top center of cake. (We let the filling run down the sides for a casual look.)
