Rue McClanahan’s Orange Poppy-Seed Cake
Also known as Blanche Devereaux from the hit Television series “The Golden Girls” and a Oklahoma Native! I am a fan of her memorial page on Facebook. And they graciously posted this recipe for all of Rue’s fans. I think that it is fabulous that even a busy actress like Rue even had time to bake. And it wasn’t beneath her to use a boxed cake mix either! I LOVE THAT!
1 box Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix
1 small package instant vanilla Pudding
1 cup orange Juice
1/2 cup oil
2 Tablespoons Poppy Seeds
2 Tablespoons grated Orange Rind
For the Orange Glaze:
2 Tablespoons Butter
2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons Milk
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and grease a bundt pan and set aside.
2. Combine all cake ingredients in a large bowl and pour into greased bundt pan.
3. Bake at 325 degrees for approx. 50 minutes.
Directions for the Glaze:
Melt Butter, brown sugar and milk together in a sauce pan. Add Powdered sugar. Amounts of powdered sugar can vary depending on the consistency that you want to achieve.
