Orange Juice Cake!

 
This "Orange Juice Cake" is a deliciously moist pound cake that has just a hint of citrus flavor.  If you want a more definitely orange flavor, add the orange flavoring to it!  This cake is great for a breakfast or brunch cake, a dessert served with fresh fruit or a scoop of ice cream or an afternoon snack!  The flavor actually improves as it sits!  Here is what you will need:

1 (18.5 oz.) box butter or yellow cake mix
1 (3.5 oz.) box instant vanilla pudding mix
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
4 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. orange flavoring (optional for a more distinct orange flavor)

Glaze:
1/2 cup butter, melted (1 stick)
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup powdered sugar for garnish


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

Spray a large Bundt pan or tube pan with nonstick baking spray (like Baker's Joy).  

In a large mixing bowl, mix the cake mix, dry pudding mix, orange juice, oil, eggs, vanilla and orange flavoring.  Beat for about 3 minutes with an electric mixer.   Pour into the prepared pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until a pick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Remove cake and allow to cool in pan while you prepare the glaze.

Combine the butter, sugar and orange juice in a sauce pan and boil while stirring for 2 minutes or you can microwave the mixture in a glass bowl for about 3-4 minutes. 

With a skewer poke holes in the cake while still in the pan.  Pour the warm glaze over all and let this sit for about 30 minutes to cool, then turn out onto a cake plate. 
 
 When completely cool, sprinkle the top with powdered sugar!
 
This is good served plain or with fresh fruit or a scoop of ice cream!
