- 1 cup chopped pecans
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 3 oz. box instant vanilla pudding
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup canola oil

- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup orange juice
Heat oven to 350°. Butter a bundt pan and layer pecans in bottom.
In large bowl, mix cake mix and pudding mix. Add oil and oj and then eggs, one at a time. Beat until smooth (3-4 min.)and pour into pan.
Bake 45 min. or until it tests done in center. Remove from oven but leave in pan.
While cake is baking make the glaze.
Melt butter in saucepan, then add sugar and oj and stir until sugar melts and is well incorporated, keeping heat on low setting.
Pour glaze over warm cake while cake is still in pan. Pour slowly and work around edges. Cake will look very wet and you'll think you have too much glaze but it will soak in. Cool in pan at least an hour before removing to serving plate.
