Need a fast crowd pleaser?? Even the kitchen illiterate can master this one . . .
With 38 of us (including T.A.’s) in the English department, there’s always food in the office. We celebrate birthdays and “half” birthdays (for those born in the summer) by taking turns bringing in a small spread usually consisting of cake and/or snacks or lunch. A dear, close colleague is retiring this year and we requested to host each other’s birthdays since we won’t be able to again. 🙁 Her birthday is approaching and below is the cake she requested. Every time I make this, this is gone by Period 3 of an 8-period day!!!
To satisfy 38 hungry intellectuals, I’ll be making this along with Crème de Menthe Brownies
and Chicken Sausage Pasta with Vodka Creme Sauce (ask me for this recipe!).
Notice a theme?!
Warning: This is not an Eat Clean recipe!!!!!
- 1 Vanilla Cake Mix
- 1 Instant Vanilla Pudding mix
- 1/2 cup Orange Juice
- 1/2 cup Amoretto
- 1/2 cup Oil (I use Vegetable or Corn)
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup Powdered Sugar
- 2 tbs. Orange Juice
- 2 tbs. Amoretto
Mix the cake ingredients and place in a greased bundt pan. Bake according to the cake mix directions. While cake is baking, mix the glaze ingredients and set aside. Once the cake has cooled, pour on the glaze. Voilà
This cake is so moist that some like it without the glaze as well.
. . . thank you to my dear Aunt Adelle for the recipe long ago.
