Orange Crush Cake!
I made a mental addition to my Woodman's list: Yellow cake mix, an orange, and a can of orange flavored soda (Sunkist TEN was on sale).
Then, Sunday afternoon was experiment time! I mixed the pop (12 oz.) and cake mix, greased up my bundt pan, poured in the batter and baked for 40 minutes.
After cooling for about 10 minutes, I poured on my glaze (powdered sugar and milk). I sprinkled on some orange zest and VIOLA!!! Orange "Sunkist" DELICIOUSNESS!!! times 1000!!!!
This guy had 2 servings --after polishing off his own steak, a salad, and some potatoes, too!
This gal gave the cake two thumbs up, too!
By my calculations, the cost was $1.90 for the entire thing (compared to Valli Produce's $4.99!) and the pop I used was only 10 calories, so each serving was around 130 calories if you cut the cake into 10 pieces (minus the glaze and ice cream). I will DEFINITELY make this one again.
P.S. I know you are all insanely jealous of my 1970's Burnt Orange bundt pan. You're just going to have to work through that on your own.
