Arun Manansingh's Quick Cake for Tough Times

Pin It Arun Manansingh is my new best friend. He is a fellow blogger whom I met at a business oriented social website called Linkedin. It's a friends of friends type of networking, where you link to others through trusted contracts. Arun and I met at an online business forum where I started a discussion regarding blogging and unemployed Wall Street executives. We have never met face to face and we do not have any contacts in common, but we do have something more important that binds us together, we have started blogging in search of new opportunities and to keep our spirit alive. We make strange blogfellows, he is in his late 30's and I am a woman of a certain age...

Until fairly recently, Arun had a very senior position as head of IT for a Wall Street firm and now writes a blog called A CIO's Epilogue. If you want to know everything about IT and in the process meet a very nice man, visit his site. I have designated him Lindaraxa's Chief Technology Officer, a job Im sure he treasures. Today he asked me if I let people contribute recipes to my site. I told him no, only friends and family. So, with that in mind (drumroll), here is Arun Manansingh's Quick Cake for Tough Times.

INGREDIENTS

1 pk Yellow cake mix (I find Duncan Hines Moist yellow cake to be the best)

1 small vanilla instant pudding (the cheaper the better)

4 large eggs

1/2 cup vegetable Oil

1 cup orange juice (with pulp)

GLAZE

1 cup confection sugar

1/2 cup margarine

1/4 cup orange juice (same as above)

1 teaspoon of orange zest



INSTRUCTIONS

Mix cake mix, pudding, eggs, oil and orange juice together.

Pour into greased bundt pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Glaze: Mix above ingredients together. Boil on very low heat ingredients for 2 minutes. Let cool slightly until glaze begins to harden. Pour over cake.

Arun's Note: You can substitute the orange for any juice you like. I have tried Apple and mango and it comes out great.
