Make This Recipe



  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 small box (3 oz.) instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 4 Eggland's Best eggs
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange rind


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 3/4 cup confectioner's sugar


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F; coat bundt pan with non-stick cooking spra.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a hand mixer, or using a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, for 3 minutes.

Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 50 minutes, or until tester inserted in the middle comes out clean.

When cake is cooled, prepare glaze. Melt butter in microwave set on low, or over low heat on your stovetop.

Add milk and brown sugar into melted butter and whisk until combined and sugar is melted.

Add powdered sugar into brown sugar mixture and continue to whisk until combined and pour over cake.

Note: you can use more or less powdered sugar, depending on how thin or thick of a consistency you prefer the glaze.
