Glazed Poppyseed Bundt Cake

  • Author: Laura


  • 1 yellow cake mix
  • 1 (3.5 oz) box of instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 tablespoon poppyseeds
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (The recipe also said pineapple juice will work.  I would think lemon and lime would also work)
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 cup sour cream (can use reduced fat)
  • 4 eggs
  • Glaze
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice (or same juice you used in the cake)
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 cube)


  1. Mix yellow cake mix, vanilla pudding and poppy seeds. Add juice, oil, and sour cream and mix.
  2. Add 4 eggs one at a time, mix well. Grease and flour a bundt pan.(I found that Pam baking spray works best for this and your bundt will not stick to the pan.  Make sure you get the “baking kind”.)
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes (don’t over bake).When the cake is done start the glaze (recipe below).  Allow cake to cool for 10 minutes.
  4. For the glaze -Bring ingredients to a boil and keep bubbling until ready to brush on cake.
  5. One cake has cooled for the 10 minutes, brush the bottom of the cake with some of the glaze.  Then invert cake on to a cooling rack.
  6. Place a cookie sheet under the cooking rack and brush remaining glaze all over the cake.  Allow cake to cool for a little more (about 50 minutes) and then serve.
