video instructions available below 👇 


– 1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
– 1 (3 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
– 4 eggs
– 1/2 cup vegetable oil
– 1/2 cup water
– 1/2 cup orange juice
– 1 tablespoon orange zest
– 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

– 1/3 cup orange juice
– 2/3 cup white sugar
– 1/4 cup butter


1. **Prepare the Bundt Pan**: Preheat your oven to 325°F (165°C) and generously grease and flour a 10-inch Bundt pan to ensure easy removal of the cake.

2. **Mix the Batter**: In a large mixing bowl, combine the yellow cake mix, instant vanilla pudding mix, eggs, vegetable oil, water, orange juice, and orange zest. Using an electric mixer, beat the ingredients on high speed for 2 minutes until well blended. If desired, gently fold in the chopped walnuts for added texture and flavor.

3. **Bake the Cake**: Pour the batter into the prepared Bundt pan, ensuring it’s evenly distributed. Bake in the preheated oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

4. **Prepare the Glaze**: While the cake is baking, prepare the glaze. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the orange juice, white sugar, and butter. Cook the mixture until the sugar is completely dissolved, creating a sweet and tangy glaze.

5. **Glaze the Cake**: Once the cake is baked, remove it from the oven and let it cool slightly in the pan. While it’s still warm, use a toothpick to poke holes all over the surface of the cake. Carefully pour the prepared glaze over the cake, allowing it to seep into the holes and infuse the cake with citrus goodness.

6. **Serve and Enjoy**: Allow the cake to cool completely before removing it from the pan. Slice and serve this moist and flavorful Orange Cake to delight your taste buds and impress your guests.


With its refreshing citrus flavor and tender crumb, our Orange Cake is a true delight for the senses. Whether enjoyed with a cup of tea or as a sweet ending to a meal, this cake is guaranteed to brighten any occasion. Treat yourself and your loved ones to a taste of sunshine with every slice. Happy baking!
