Orange Juice Cake


Have you tried orange juice cake? I'm drooling over it (just kidding, I am actually just eating it in a sedate, ladylike, very controlled manner). It's just right for eating outside on your porch on a summer evening.
You, too, can make it. Like this:

1 yellow cake mix (or white)
1 small box vanilla pudding
4 eggs
1 c. orange juice (already made; not concentrate)
1/2 c. oil

Mix together and spread into well-greased bundt pan. Bake at 350 for 45-50 min. (Convection oven: 325, 40 min.)

While it's baking, mix the following in a saucepan:

1/4 c. margarine (or up to 1/2 c., if you like it buttery-er)
1/2 c. sugar (or up to 1. c., if you like it sweeter)
3/4 to 1 c. orange juice

Bring to a rolling boil. When cake comes out, pour this mixture over the hot cake while it's still in the pan. Let it soak in for 1/2 hour or so. Then turn the cake out onto a plate and eat!
(*I put fresh basil on mine to make it look pretty, and I think it tastes really good with it too!)

  1. Marilyn, this cake looks just right, indeed.

    And a note for Sam:

    What a fine moment of pure athleticism. Thanks for chiming in. And I most certainly do remember meeting you.
