Harvey Wallbanger Cake (The alcohol burns off, right?)

by | Jul 4, 2012 | Blog, From the Kitchen | 0 comments

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)
4 eggs
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)

About Me

KarenHello and welcome.
I am often asked, “What is Pasta on the Floor?”
Pasta on the Floor is different for everyone. It is a recipe that tells a story and inspires them to try something new. For others, stories of family, joy, loss, and hope engage with them. This brings me a great deal of happiness. I do not take myself too seriously, so be forewarned the subject matter is open and truthful. In many ways, Pasta is a tale of life, and I think you will find familiarity and commonality as you scroll through these pages.
