Myriam’s Orange Cake

This is from Del Hanover, Bolingbrook, IL. It’s her granddaughter Myriam’s recipe.

1 Yellow Cake Mix, any brand
1 cup orange juice
4 eggs
1 vanilla instant pudding mix
½ cup cooking oil
Walnuts to taste

Mix all ingredients except walnuts on medium speed in mixer, until smooth.  Place walnuts in bottom of bundt pan, which has been sprayed liberally with vegetable spray.  Pour cake batter over top and bake 40-50 minutes at 350.

While cake is baking, make glaze:

½ cup orange juice
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter.

Place in small saucepan and bring to a boil for 2 minutes.  Let cool, then pierce top of cake in pan with fork.  Pour glaze over and let it sink in for about 5 minutes, then invert your pan and do the same on the opposite side, if desired.

Del’s note: I imagine you could also chop the walnuts and put them directly into the batter if you like.
