Orange Glow Bundt Cake

I have seen quite a few cake recipes featuring unusual ingredients such as sauerkraut, mayonnaise, tomato soup etc. This recipe is a new one to me, it has Tabasco Sauce! I found it in a little supermarket booklet titled Grandma's Baking and more. About half of the recipes call for name brand ingredients so this one was obviously developed by the McIlhenny company. I don't know if one tablespoon of sauce is enough to really taste but it sure sounds weird to me!

Orange Glow Bundt Cake

1 (18.25-ounce) package moist yellow cake mix

1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1 cup orange juice

1/4 cup sugar

1 tablespoon Tabasco brand Pepper Sauce

1-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease 12-cup Bundt pan. Prepare cake mix according to package directions, adding orange peel to batter. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until tooth pick inserted in center of cake comes out clean.

Meanwhile, heat orange juice, sugar and Tabasco sauce to boiling in 1-quart saucepan. Reduce heat to low; simmer, uncovered 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Reserve 1/4 cup orange juice mixture for glaze. Remove cake from oven. With wooden skewer, poke hoes in cake (in pan) in several places. Spoon remaining orange juice mixture over cake. Cool cake in pan 10 minutes. Carefully invert cake onto wire rack to cool completely.

Combine reserved -1/4 cup orange juice mixture and confectioners' sugar in small bowl until smooth. Place cake on platter; spoon glaze over cake. Garnish as desired.

I have a Tabasco pamphlet cookbook that has a sweet muffin recipe in it with a small amount of Tabasco. Seems unnecessary to me but it probably doesn't taste bad.
