Our friend, Patricia, from Patty's Cake, is hosting this month's Bundt Bakers event and has chosen the theme "Cocktails". YUM!!! Patricia left it up to us whether we wanted to add actual alcohol to our recipe. You know me...Pass the Tequila!
I knew, as soon as I heard the theme, that I was going to go with Strawberry Margarita. This is because I had a jar of homemade Strawberry/Tequila jam that our son, Anthony, had made for us and I knew it would be the perfect glaze for this cake.
This was one of the desserts I offered up after Easter Dinner. It was a great addition to our table and the best part.....it was easy peasy! I started with a boxed cake mix, substituted packaged Strawberry Margarita Mix and Tequila for the water and baked it up. You could easily make this non alcoholic by using a full cup of Margarita mix and deleting the Tequila and substituting plain strawberry jam for the Strawberry/Tequila jam that I used.
When the cake was cooled, I melted the entire jar of Strawberry/ Tequila jam and poured it over the cake. Now, if you are not fortunate enough to have a son that provides you with Strawberry/Tequila jam you can just use 8 oz of Strawberry Jam.
I served it up with a dollop of whipped cream and a cute little Easter cookie. It was a great ending to a perfect Easter feast.
Strawberry Margarita Cake
1 box yellow cake mix
3/4 c. strawberry margarita mix
1/4 c. tequila
1/3 c. canola oil
8 oz. Strawberry/Tequila jam
Place all ingredients into large bowl of stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour into a bundt pan that has been liberally treated with baking spray. Bake in a preheated 350* oven for 35-37 minutes, until a skewer inserted removes cleanly. Remove to a rack and allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing the cake from the pan onto the cooling rack.
When cake is cooled completely, place onto a cake platter. Melt the jam in a small saucepan over low heat and drizzle over the top and down the sides of the cake. Print Recipe
