The cake you get from this delightfully easy recipe tastes just like the cocktail, thanks to the use of Galliano in the batter and glaze.

So moist and full of flavor but I do have some suggestions. If you can find one use an orange cake mix. Also fluid ounces confuse me (are they the same as ounces?) so I used 1/2 cup galliano and 2 tablespoons of vodka in the cake. In the glaze I did 1 tablespoon of oj 1 of galliano and 1 teaspoon of vodka. When you're baking you already have the teaspoons out so it's much easier. Also I do recommend adding the vodka because it gave something to the cake. You know how sometimes you sip a really good cocktail and the alcohol warms you? That's what happened when I took a bite. Wonderful. I highly recommend the cake with the changes I made. Also for those who would like to try to make the drink a bartender told me-take a juice glass (tall or short) and fill with ice. Add a shot of vodka half a shot of galliano and fill to top with orange juice. Stir. You'll find it tastes just like the cake! Read More

THIS IS TOO DIE FOR!!! My mom used to make this recipe only she does it ever so slightly differently. She uses only 1 oz. of Galliano and 6 oz. of O.J. in the cake mix. She omits the vodka as she says it's a waste as you can't really taste it because it burns up in the oven. This is truly heavenly! A must try. Read More

I used orange vodka and was a bit heavy handed on that and the Galiano. I also put the excess glaze into the middle of the bundt cake and let it sit over night. The bottom of the cake absorbed most of the extra glaze and it was awesome! Read More

I've been making variations of this cake for several years now. Try using an orange cake mix or a lemon one...absolutely delicious as well. This is a long-standing favourite. Read More

Excellent recipe. For any banana lovers I have tried a variation on the recipe. Substituta a banana liquer for Galliano banana instant pudding instead of vanilla and an orange/banana/strawberry juice for the OJ. Turns out AMAZING everyone loved it. Could be done for almost any flavour! Read More

I'd give this recipe 100 stars if I could. I DARE you to just eat one piece. My granny made this all the time and I came here looking for the recipe. WOW there are not words to express how absolutely delish this cake is. I also made it as a "Lemon Poppyseed" cake; use Lemon Supreme cake mix instant lemon pudding and 1/2 C lemon juice and 1/2 cup water in place of the alcohol. Mix in a few table spoons of poppyseeds and make the glaze out of lemon juice grated lemon peel and confectioners sugar. This cake ROCKS like you can't imagine. A real crowd pleaser. And as one other reviewer suggested bake on 325 degrees for about 55 minutes and it turns out lighter and fluffier. Read More
