This cake recipe is easy and impressive. I’ve made it a few times before, and it’s always a hit. I made it last year for the Superbowl party that a friend hosted, and I thought it would be a good one to try out on Dino’s coworkers this year.

Margarita Cake

This cake recipe is easy and impressive. I've made it a few times before, and it's always a hit. I made it last year for the Superbowl party that a friend hosted, and I thought it would be a good one to try out on Dino's coworkers this year.

Ingredients

For the cake:
1 (18.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
4 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup lemon or lime juice (or a combo of both)
1/4 cup tequila
2 tablespoons triple sec liqueur
For the glaze:
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 tablespoon tequila
2 tablespoons triple sec liqueur
2 tablespoons lime juice
lime zest, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan (I prefer to use a little of the cake mix powder instead of flour).
  2. In a large bowl combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, oil, water, lemon or lime juice 1/4 cup tequila and 2 tablespoons triple sec. Beat for 2 minutes.
  3. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes; remove to rack and pour glaze over cake while still warm. Garnish with lime zest.
  4. To make the glaze: In a small bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar with 1 tablespoon tequila, 2 tablespoons triple sec and 2 tablespoons lime juice. Mix until smooth.
