A Slice of Summer – Margarita Cake

Bundt cakes are the ultimate in low maintenance cake making.  Especially when it involves using a cake mix.  There are countless ways to liven up a simple cake mix.  The Cake Mix Doctor is my go-to for ideas.  It has more than just Bundt cakes too.  Block party season is here and there is nothing easier than providing a Bundt cake for dessert.  Here is my favorite for a hot summer day.

Margarita Cake

1 yellow cake mix
1 small package lemon pudding mix
4 eggs
1/2 cup oil
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup tequila
2 T triple sec
Zest of 1 lime

Glaze:
1 Cup powdered sugar
1 T tequila
2 T triple sec
2 T lime juice

Directions:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a Bundt cake pan.
In a large bowl combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, oil, water, lime juice, lime zest, tequila, and triple sec. Beat for 2 minutes (until smooth). Scrape the bowl occasionally with a rubber spatula.
Pour batter into prepared Bundt cake pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
