I can't wait to share this delightful beauty with you. It is a cake from days gone by for my mom and siblings, but I, never have eaten it. My mom is sure I did, but never that I recall. When I brought this cake up to my some of my siblings I got responses like, "OHHHHH, I LOVED that cake" and "Mom and Sharon used to make this cake", and simple "yuuummmmmmmm"! I decided I must get the recipe and try it. News flash, NOBODY has the recipe anymore. What? How could something that is evidently so amazing, be lost?! I found the recipe on cooks.com and both "moms" agreed it was the recipe they made. Here are these 2 crazy amazing ladies at my moms 75th birthday party!
So in honor of my mom and the woman who treated us like her own I present to you, Grecian Orange Cake! I love you both!
You will need:
Yellow Cake Mix
1 pkg instant lemon pudding
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup orange juice concentrate
2 cups powdered sugar (confectioners, icing)
2 tbsp. melted butter
Combine all ingredients for the glaze and set aside.
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Combine cake mix, lemon pudding, oil and water. Whisk or mix untl completely combined and smooth. Spray or grease a bundt cake pan and pur batter into it. Level your batter and bake for 45 minutes. Immediately after you remove it from the oven, leaving it in the pan, poke holes with a skewer. DO NOT poke them all the way to the bottom, maybe 3/4 of the way down. Pour half of the glaze mixture over the top. Let sit for 15 minutes. Remove onto a plate or cake stand or platter, Let sit another 5-10 minutes. Pour the rest of the glaze over the top and dig in!
Hoping this recipe brings you as much happiness as it does the Smith and Novosad families!
