My favorite drink at Sonic...a Cherry Limeade. On the hot days of summer (all 200 of them in Texas!), one has to indulge in a cold drink to cool you down. I combined my favorite cold drink with my favorite little cake recipe. So refreshing and light! Love.
1 box of white cake mix
2 small boxes of instant vanilla pudding
1/2 cup of veggie oil
1 can of limeade concentrate, thawed and divided
1/2 cup Grenadine (or cherry juice...whatever you have), divided
2 cups powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease (I use Pam) a 10 inch bundt pan
In mixing bowl, combine cake mix, puddings, oil, 1 1/4 cups limeade, 2 tablespoons Grenadine and eggs with electric mixer. Pour cake batter into prepared pan and bake 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Let cake rest on counter in pan 10 minutes. Then, invert the cake onto a serving plate.
To make the glaze, combine powdered sugar with splashes of reserved limeade and grenadine. Combine until you get the right consistency. Add more powdered sugar if it's too thin and more limeade if it's too thick. Spoon glaze over cooled cake.
I was trying to photograph this cake and a little munchkin kept eating the cherries off the plate.
This is me in my pjs, without makeup, in the backyard, with my cherry stealing 3 year old, photographing this cake :).
I came back inside and found a cherry stealing 2 year old eating the cherries I had out on the counter.
Then I saw him pick up a lime wedge. I warned him that he wouldn't like it...
...but he just didn't listen.
