***NOTE: I have modified this recipe slightly since the last time I posted it.
18-1/2 oz. yellow cake mix
3-1/4 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix
1/2 cup Southern Comfort
1/2 cup cold water
1/2 cup oil
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (I prefer walnuts.)
4 T. Butter
1/8 cup water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup Southern Comfort
Combine cake ingredients in a large bowl and beat at a medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour into a greased and floured 10-inch tube or 12-cup bundt pan. Bake at 325ºF for 1 hour. Cool on rack. Invert on serving plate; prick top repeatedly with toothpick and brush with glaze coating well.
IF YOU WANT TO....after cake has cooled, reheat any left over glaze and brush over cake. Sift 1 t. of powdered sugar over cake just before serving (OPTIONAL).
To make glaze, melt butter in saucepan. Stir in water and sugar. Boil 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in Southern Comfort.
I send these to Robby's office in Plain Cake Boxes which I buy from Michael's (Remember...never, ever, EVER go to Michael's without visiting their website first for a coupon. They usually have one of those FABULOUS 40% off coupons!). I also buy the 10 inch cake rounds to put the cake on before putting it in the box. I think I get 10 in a pack for like $4. I also print recipe cards with the recipe printed on them for him to put next to the cake in the event anyone wants to make it at home. It's usually a MAJOR hit!
