A Bundt?....oh, a Cake.

Sorry about the above reference to My Big Fat Greek Wedding, it was what I was thinking all day long as I baked smelled this amazing cake I made for my Enrichment Committee meeting. This cake will flip your lid. It was so good and I felt like Martha herself when all ranted and raved about it. So, if you need to impress and want an easy way here's one. Sorry, you don't get a picture of the whole cake. I didn't think about posting it untill I saw the reaction.

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.
