Even if you are a cake-mix hater, you have got to try this cake. I’d bet that it would change your mind!!

I have made this cake multiple times over the last probably 10 years. And it still is one of my favorites. Super moist and delicious – and almost fail proof. It has sunk a little on the top a few times, but the top becomes the bottom, and no one will ever notice!! This is perfect for a summer picnic or get-together – and a sure crowd pleaser!

    Oooh I'd love to make that cake. It looks so delicious! But unfortunately American cake mixes and pudding mixes are terribly expensive here in the UK. Must wait til my next trip home! K x

  3. Liz Brooks says:

    YUM! I have a similar lemon cake and I use a thick icing instead of a glaze. This looks like I nice change!

  4. Barbara Bakes says:

  5. Frieda says:

    Yum! I bet this would be good as a lemon/poppy seed cake….

  6. Barbara says:

    I'm going to try this. I have a 7 up pound cake recipe I have been using for years, but I love lemon and this looks perfect.

  7. Grace says:

    i definitely don't hate cake mix, and i definitely don't hate this cake! it sounds perfect for a summer soiree!

  8. Ryley says:

    Yum! Sounds nice and summery…

  9. kamailesfood says:

    Mmm…sounds fantastic. Maybe swapping the glaze with a vanilla sauce would make it taste like a creamsicle. I love creamsicles.

  10. Maria says:

    What an easy recipe. I love citrus desserts!

  11. Laura says:

    This looks great. I got a Bundt pan for a wedding gift 4 years ago, and still have not used the damned thing. Just may have to try this!

  19. Miakoda says:

    You know, i haven't seen too many desserts online flavored mainly with oranges. A shame, because it is such a beautiful taste. I love this one 🙂

  20. LilSis says:

    I'm really going to have to try this cake! I love the addition of the orange juice and the pudding mix. And, I usually have better luck with bundt cakes for some reason.

    Mmm beautiful bundt cake! Looks like a great recipe to have in your repertoire for when you need a quick and easy cake!

  25. Ashley says:

    Sometimes cake mixes are perfect – like when you need an easy dessert that you'd like to jazz up without going 100% from scratch. I've had great luck with a few that I threw together in a pinch for last minute get-togethers. This one looks like a great one to try, too!

  26. tabithablogs says:

    Found this via foodgawker and I'm making it this very moment…but it's my first EVER attempt at a bundt cake, so I'm a little clueless. Is this one that should be served warm, or can I refrigerate and serve it tomorrow night? Should I do the drizzle glaze thing right before serving, or is it okay to do now and refrigerate it? Help! 😛

  27. Deborah says:

    tabithablogs – I hope I'm not too late in answering your questions! The last time I made this cake, I made it the night before, and kept it covered. I put the glaze on several hours before I served it. Hope it works out for you and that you love it like I do!

  28. Shannon says:

    Hi, do you think this would work out okay to bake in two loaf pans instead of a bundt pan? It's easier to share with neighbors that way.

  29. Deborah says:

    Shannon – I've only tried it in a bundt pan, but I'm pretty sure it would work in 2 loaf pans!

    I use one 3 oz. box of orange jello instead of the pudding, Love this cake. So moist. I believe Pillsbury has the orange frosting that is perfect for this cake.
