Ingredients

  • One  18.25-ounce box yellow cake mix
  • 1  Tablespoon  grated orange zest
  • 1  Cup  orange juice
  • 1/4  Cup  sugar
  • 1  Tablespoon  Tabasco Sauce
  • 1 3/4  Cup  powdered sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 12-cup Bundt pan. Prepare the cake mix according to package directions, adding orange zest to mix. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 35-40 minutes. 

Meanwhile, heat the orange juice, sugar, and Tabasco Sauce in a 1-quart saucepan, and bring to a boil. Reduce to low and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Remove ¼ cup of the mixture for the glaze. 

Remove the cake from oven. With a wooden skewer, poke holes in cake in several places. Spoon the remaining ¾ cup of the orange juice mixture over the cake. Cool the cake in the pan for 10 minutes. Invert the pan onto a wire rack and cool completely.

Combine the reserved ¼ cup of the orange juice mixture with the powdered sugar in small bowl and mix until smooth. Place the cake on platter and spoon the glaze over the cake to decorate.

Orange Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
