RECIPE: Margarita Cake

trixietxSeptember 15, 2004

I made this last weekend, we had beef and chicken fajitas and wanted a dessert to go with the meal.

It's good, almost like a Rum Cake with a little different twist.

Margarita Cake

1 orange cake mix(I used orange supreme)

1 sm. pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix

4 eggs

1/2 c. veg. oil

2/3 c. water

1/4 c. lemon juice

1/4 c. tequila

2 T. trip sec liqueur

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 10 inch bundt pan.

In a large bowl combine cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, oil, water, lemon juice, tequila and triple sec. Beat for 2 minutes.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 45 to 50 min, or until toothpick inserted into the center of cake comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes, remove to rack and pour glaze over cake while warm.


1 c. confectioners' sugar

1 T. tequila

2 T. triple sec liqueur

2 T. lime juice

Mix in bowl until smooth.

I bet it is good. I'd have to skip eating it but it sounds perfect for the dinner you made & I'm sure it was a hit.
