dallas' dew cake

This cake got rave reviews from my family! I was so delighted because I made it especially for my stepson. I had asked him what kind of dessert he would like for Thanksgiving and he described a bundt cake he had once had and loved. He said it was orange, super moist (almost wet,) was made with Mountain Dew and had a white drizzle icing. I couldn't find a recipe that matched his description, so I created my own. He declared it, "Spot on!" (And he took the remainder of the cake home with him!)

How To Make dallas' dew cake

  • Ingredients for Dallas' Dew Cake.
    Gather ingredients. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a bundt pan (or use Bakers Joy cooking spray;) set aside.
  • 2
    In a large bowl, combine cake mix and pudding mix.
  • 3
    Add oil, beaten eggs and Mountain Dew soda. Mix on low speed until all ingredients are moistened, then mix the cake batter on medium speed for about two minutes until it becomes smooth and thick; scrape the bowl as needed.
  • 4
    Pour into prepared pan; bake in preheated oven 32 to 35 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • 5
    While cake is baking, make the glaze by melting butter in a medium saucepan; add sugar and Mountain Dew. Bring to a boil and cook for two minutes.
  • 6
    Allow the cake to cool in the pan for for a couple of minutes, then use a chopstick or skewer to poke about 15 to 20 holes in cake while still in pan.
  • 7
    Spoon about 1/3 to 1/2 of the glaze onto the cake and into the holes.
  • 8
    Immediately transfer to cake plate. (To transfer, cut a circle of parchment paper to fit plate. Place a dab of the glaze in the middle of plate to prevent sliding, then lay parchment circle on plate. Lay plate, paper side down, on top of cake in pan, then flip the whole thing over. The cake should fall right out of the pan and onto the plate.) Remove pan.
  • Glazed dew cake.
    Poke top of cake; drizzle with remainder of the glaze (or most of it.)
  • 10
    Allow cake to cool completely before adding the icing drizzle (about 2 hours or so.)
  • Drizzled dew cake.
    To make the icing drizzle, mix the powdered sugar with ¼ cup of the soda. Stir until smooth and creamy. You want this icing to be very thick, but still pourable. If it's easier, transfer the icing to a large measuring cup then slowly pour it onto the top of the cake. You probably won't use all of the icing, it just depends on how much of the cake you want covered. Let the icing firm up before slicing.
