Orange Bundt Cake

I got this recipe from a roommate a few years ago and it instantly became an obsession of mine. I felt like every time we would get through the entire cake I would make another one. We (well maybe just me) age if for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, basically any reason to eat I would make sure I had some of this cake. It is moist and delicious. If you are looking for a good bundt cake this one will not disappoint.

Orange Bundt Cake

1 package yellow cake mix (I used 3 cups of this homemade yellow cake mix)
3/4 cup water (I use orange juice for extra citrus flavor but water works well too)
2/3 cup oil
4 eggs
1 small package instant lemon pudding


3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/3 cup orange juice
1 1/3 cups powdered sugar

Put all ingredients in a bowl and beat with mixer for 10 minutes. I love my kitchen aid mixer for this process. Grease and flour bundt pan. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. While cake is baking mix together lemon juice, orange juice, powdered sugar. Cake is done when a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Immediately remove from pan and brush on glaze with a pastry brush while cake is still warm. To make the cake even more moist and citrusy, double the glaze mixture and inject small amounts into sections of the cake. The bundt pan makes nice ridges so you can easily see small sections of the cake. This step does take a few extra minutes but increases the flavor and moisture of the cake!

Thanks Susan for the excellent recipe!
