yellow cake mix
1 (3.5 ounce) package
instant vanilla pudding mix
Great Cake. The directions fail to tell you where & when to do the vodka. Mix the vodka with your 3/4 cup of orange juice & rest of ingred. I only had French vanilla Instant pudding on hand......Turned out Fantastic!
This cake was good but it didn't have much flavor. It was very moist but didn't have much orange flavor. I had people ask me why it was called screwdriver cake. If I make it again I will add extra orange flavor and do a different topping since this one just soaked in.
What a great idea! I could only find a red velvet cake mix and that seemed to work. My BF tasted the batter and said he couldn't taste the vodka, so I put an extra 1/4 cup - wooooh! I juiced an orange and added zest for the glaze but it was pretty runny; needs more powdered sugar. Also, step 2 forgets to list the addition of vodka, but that's when it goes in.
I made this for a superbowl party and everyone loved it. The glaze did absorb into the cake so I made another batch of glaze reducing the orange juice to two tablespoons and regalzed after it completely cooled. I also added fresh orange zest to the glaze. My husdand is a chef and loved this cake.
Everyone that tried this cake just loved it! I plan to make it often. I adjusted the glaze by using less orange juice so the glaze would be thicker and added a bit of orange flavoring to help mask the taste of powdered sugar.
It doesn't mention it, but you put the vodka in with the juice. My friend and I made this together and brought it to a bunch of friends. It was a hit...almost couldn't save any for later!! I used the Cake Mixes from Scratch with Variations recipe's dry ingredients instead of a cake mix too.
I squeezed my own orange juice and accidentally added a lemon, but it still turned out delicious!!! I will definitely be making this again!!
I added orange zest to the cake batter and it made it even more delicious! The glaze was really good too. I added a teaspoon of vodka to the glaze as well, just add more 10x sugar to compensate for the extra liquid
