Chocolate Orange Bundt Cake

Did you know that not everything has to be made from scratch……yep……there are shortcuts that are sometimes just as good!  This recipe is one of those. If you need a dessert for an upcoming event and want something that is not too difficult but full of yumminess this is the one for you.



  • 1 box of Pillsbury chocolate mix (yep – I said it – prepackaged cake mix!)
  • 1 cup of fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 2 Tbs orange zest
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 c mayo (trust me here)
  • 2 Tbs balsamic vinegar (still trust me) I used Simply Infused Dark Chocolate Balsamic and their Blood Orange olive oil instead of regular cooking oil.
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • Chocolate Glaze: 3/4 cup powdered sugar, 2 Tbs cocoa powder, 2 Tbs OJ


  • Prepare the cake mix as directed but substitute the water with orange juice.
  • To the cake mix add the balsamic, vanilla and mayo and 1 Tbs orange zest
  • Pour the batter into a greased “bundt” pan and bake according to package
  • While the cake is baking, prepare the glaze. Whisk all ingredients and set aside
  • Let the cake cool slightly and turn onto a cake stand. Drizzle the glaze over the top and sprinkle with the other Tbs of Orange zest.
