Orange Juice Cake

Note: I saw this recipe a few weeks ago on My Sister's Cucina and decided to try it. My boys ate it up! It is a great breakfast cake. I used the Sister's picture of the cake because they used the pecans when baking and I didn't because that is the way my boys prefer it.

Orange Juice Cake


Yellow Cake mix
Instant Vanilla Pudding (small box)
1/2 cup Oil
1 cup Orange Juice
4 Eggs
Chopped Pecans (about 1/2 cup, or more if you like)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together. Don't over-mix! Spray bundt cake pan. Sprinkle chopped pecans on the bottom of the pan. Pour cake mix evenly in bundt pan. Bake for 30-45 minutes. You know when it is done when it starts to pull away from the sides and the inside ring. While baking, make your glaze.


1 Stick Butter
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Orange Juice

Combine butter, sugar and juice in small saucepan. Bring to a boil and turn off. When cake comes out of the oven, stir glaze well before spooning over hot cake so that the butter gets mixed back in. (When it sits the butter settles to the top.) The glaze will eventually seep through the cake giving it a juicey moistness all over. This is what your cake will look like after the glaze settles in. Let it sit for 1 hour before removing from your pan. To remove from pan, place your plate upside down over the bundt pan and flip.

I am not sure if this is something I'd like BUT it's certainly something I would love to make for a brunch. I have this citrus hang up in food but I love it by itself. But since I have some lemon cookies on my list to make maybe I can put this on my list too :) Have an awesome weekend!!!
