Bundt Cake Craze

Wow the recipe Shannon shared on her blog was amazing! I went to Target and purchased my first Bundt pan. I made the Chocolate Cake on Saturday night. It was gone by Monday morning:)

I looked for some more recipes I could try, Hoping they would be a little less rich and sweet. So this is the cake I made Monday night. I didn't take this picture until the cake was 1/2 eaten on Tue. The picture was taken with my I-Phone so it is not so good.
Pumpkin Orange Poppy Seed Cake
1 Pkg. (18 1/4 oz.) yellow cake mix
1 1/4 cups libby's 100% pure pumpkin
2/3 cup Orange juce (I used some lemon juice and orange juice, no sugar in lemon juice)
3 eggs
1/4 cup poppy seeds
Orange glaze (Recipe follows, good without too.)
Combine: Cake mix, pumpkin, orange juice and eggs in large mixer bowl; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. I mixed mine by hand. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add poppy seeds; mix until blended. Spread batter into a greased and flowered 12 cup fluted pan.(bundt)
Bake: in preheated 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 min. or until wooden pick inserted in cake comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack 10 min.. Invert onto wire rack to cool completely. I just turn it over onto the plate after it cools the first 10 min. I'm not very good at following directions though. Frost top of cake with orange glaze. Goes well with vanilla Ice cream or frozen yogurt.
Makes 24 servings.
Orange Glaze:
Combine and stir all ingredients in small bowl.
1 1/2 cups sifted powdered sugar
2 to 3 tbs orange juice
This is a Nestle Toll House Recipe with my added comments:)
I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
