    December 2005
    I found an excellent source of recipes for the holidays on the net: Food Network's Food TV,
    Click on the TV tab and select a show. I chose the show we watch called "Semi-homemade cooking with Sandra Lee". She had several shows for Thanksgiving and she will have more for Christmas. Her recipes are delightful, and easy. Here is one I really enjoyed:

    Spiced Pumpkin Bundt Cake with Citrus Glaze

    Cake:
    • 6 eggs
    • 2/3 cup oil
    • 1 cup canned pumpkin pie mix
    • 2/3 cup water
    • 2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
    • 1 box moist spice cake mix
    • 1 box moist yellow cake mix

    Glaze:
    • Yellow food coloring
    • Red food coloring
    • 1 pound powdered sugar
    • 1/3 cup orange juice, no pulp
    • 3 teaspoons orange liqueur

    Cake:
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
    Butter and flour a 12-cup bundt cake pan.
    In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, oil, pumpkin pie mix, water, and pumpkin pie spice. Beat until well blended.
    Add the cake mixes and stir to combine.
    Pour the mixture to the prepared pan and bake for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Invert the cake onto a cooling rack.

    Glaze:
    Combine 2 parts yellow food coloring with 4 parts red food coloring to make orange food coloring. Whisk the powdered sugar, orange juice, orange liqueur, and food coloring in a saucepan on low heat for 5 minutes or until the sugar melts. If the glaze seems too dry, add more water or orange juice to reach the right consistency. Drizzle the glaze over the cake.
