What, doesn't everyone have one of these lying around in their fridge? lol.. Three tiers with three layers of yellow cake filled with almond custard filling and pineapple custard filling. The only thing missing is cake jewelry, which I'll add tomorrow and probably post another pic.
The joys of summer grilling! John made hamburgers with Everglade Seasoning (the best burger spice EVER!) and I made grilled green beans to use up some of the beans I grew. (Green beans, olive oil, creole seasoning, red and green peppers, wrapped in foil and grilled)
We grilled Salmon and asparagus tonight, but I was too hungry to take photos!
1 package yellow cake mix (no pudding in the mix variety) 1 (3.5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding 3/4 cup orange juice (double strength from concentrate) 1/2 cup vodka 1/4 cup vegetable oil 3 eggs
1 cup confectioners' sugar 2 tablespoons orange juice (double strength from concentrate) plus 1 tablespoon vodka
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray Bundt pan with Baker's Joy.
Combine cake mix, pudding mix, vodka, 3/4 cup orange juice, oil and eggs. Beat until smooth, and pour into Bundt pan.
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into middle of cake comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan, then turn out onto cooling rack. Glaze with orange glaze.
Orange glaze: Mix confectioners sugar with 2 tablespoons orange juice and 1 tablespoon of vodka.
Crust 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (190 g) 1/3 cup sugar 2 tsp orange zest (about 1/2 large orange) 1/4 tsp salt 3/4 cup butter, chilled and cut into pieces
Orange Topping 3 large eggs, room temperature 3/4 cups sugar 6 tbsp sour cream (90 g) 3 tbsp all purpose flour (22 g) 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp salt 1/4 cup orange juice plus 1/8 cup (made from concentrate with 1/2 H2O called for) 1 tbsp orange zest (about a whole large orange)
Preheat oven to 350F.
Mix the flour, sugar orange zest and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until you get a crumbly mixture with pea sized pieces of butter remaining. Press evenly into your pan, Baker's Edge or a 9 x 13 and bake for 15-20 minutes, the corners should just be turning golden brown.
For the topping, mix the remaining ingredients until smooth. When the crust comes out of the oven, pour in the orange topping and bake for about 25 minutes. The topping should be set and just turning brown at the corners. Cool completely on a wire rack and sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired.
