My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Harvey Wallbanger Cake

A little while ago I posted a recipe for Better Than Sex Cake and one of my wonderful followers, Nancy@Promises To Keep reminded me of the Harvey Wallbanger Cake, another old 70's cake.

I go searching through what is suppose to be my recipe files, what a disaster, I can't believe I find anything. But there it was.

This taste just like the cocktail only in cake form.

Harvey Wallbanger Cake
12 servings
print recipe

1 (18.25 ounce) package orange deluxe cake mix, I use Duncan Hines
1 (3.5-ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
4 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
5 ounce Galliano liqueur
2 ounce vodka
1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup confectioners' sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour one 10-inch tube or bundt pan.

Combine cake mix and pudding mix in a large bowl. Blend in eggs, vegetable oil, 4 ounces Galliano, 1 ounce vodka, and 4 ounces orange juice. Mix batter until smooth and thick and pour into prepared pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Let cake cool in pan for 10 minutes then remove and place on cooling rack. Spoon glaze over cake while it is still warm.

To make Glaze: Combine the remaining 1 ounce Galliano, 1 ounce vodka, and 1 ounce orange juice with the confectioners' sugar and blend until smooth. Spoon glaze over warm cake.
