My dear friend Cynthia made this cake for me after I had my daughter Amelia in 1997. I was shell shocked and in that new mother haze of I love this baby but really, can anything that small sleep so little, eat so little and poop so much!
Since that time, I have made this cake, no lie, 1000 times. Tonight I have my Zumba playlist on and I am marinating chicken, having a glass of Relax wine and making this cake. Please try it. I have made it for Christmas breakfast with fruit on top, for dessert with a little liquor poured on it or just slicing it off a piece at a time as Cynthia and I did some 15 years ago.
Harvey Wallbanger Cake
1 pkg yellow cake mix (I really prefer Pillsbury)
1 pkg vanilla instant pudding (3 3/4 ounces)
1/2 cup of oil (Don’t skimp & use the applesauce this time)
1/4 cup of Vodka ( I like Stoli Vanilla)
1/4 cup of Galliano
3/4 cup of Orange Juice
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees and prepare a bundt pan well greased and floured.
Beat all the above ingredients together for 4 minutes. The batter will become beautifully thick and smooth.
Pour batter into the pan and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. check your oven, mine is a bit fast so it takes less time.
Cool completely after removing from pan and dust with confectioners sugar.
Serves 8-10 regular people or 4-6 hormonal women! Enjoy.
…..and remember, the alcohol cooks off but if you lick the batter, you are on your own.
(Love you Cyn)
