Megans Cookin: Orange Glow Cake Recipe!

Orange Glow Cake Recipe!

I have to say,
You guys came up with some great guesses as to what the secret ingredient was.
And a few ideas that I might just have to try. :)

But the secret ingredient,

the item that gave it so much kick

was...


Tabasco Sauce!

And what a kick it had.
The recipe called for a tablespoon of the hot sauce
to be used in a orange juice mix.
I was a bit concerned after tasting the spiked O.J. mixture.
but I thought the sweetness of the cake would
mellow the kick of the hot sauce.


You add orange zest to a yellow cake mix
made according to package directions.
Throw it in a Bundt pan and bake it up.
It was mistaken for a lemon cake a couple of times so
I think it would be better to start with an orange cake mix,
(instead of yellow) if you can find one.






Poke holes in the hot cake with a wooden skewer and
pour 2/3 of the spiked OJ over the cake.
It soaks into the cake, but the bottom was spicier!
Use the rest of the O.J. to make a glaze.
Pour the glaze on top and your good to go.

An Orange Glow Cake that carries a punch.

But if your afraid of the punch,
leave out the Tabasco
and you still have a beautiful orange Bundt cake
perfect for the lighter days of spring!
