Thirsty Thursday...

Today I am linking up with Kristin from Hopelessly Ever After for Thirsty Thursday... So Welcome!!

This is going to be a Two for One Recipe.... It is a drink and a cake recipe.... 

I have not been able to have one lately so I had to find stock photos of both... 



Harvey Wallbanger 

1 oz of Vodka
1/2 oz of Galliano 
4 oz of Orange Juice 

Pour vodka and orange juice into a collins glass over ice cubes and stir. Float Galliano on top and serve


Harvey Wallbanger Cake 
My dad made these ALL the time as I was growing up... 
Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 10 to 12 servings

Ingredients:

  • Cake:
  • 1 box (about 18.75 ounces) yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup Galliano liqueur
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 1 package (3-ounces) vanilla instant pudding mix
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Galliano
  • 1 teaspoon vodka

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a Bundt pan or spray with floured vegetable spray.

Place cake mix, oil, eggs, liqueur, vodka, pudding mix, and orange juice into a large mixing bowl. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.

Pour evenly into prepared Bundt pan and tap gently on the counter to release any air bubbles. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean. (Do not overbake or it will become dry.) Let rest for 5 minutes. Gently loosen edges around the rims with a thin rubber spatula. Invert and unmold from Bundt pan onto a cake platter, then glaze while warm.

For the glaze, mix powdered sugar, orange juice, liqueur, and vodka until smooth. (If it is too thick, add more orange juice a few drops at a time to get a drizzling consistency. If it is too thin, add more powdered sugar a teaspoon at a time.) Drizzle over the warm cake and let cool to room temperature for glaze to set.

Yield: 1 bundt cake (about 10 to 12 servings)
