Ingredients Nutrition

  • CAKE
  • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box yellow cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 12 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (10 ounce) jarpassionfruit jelly
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange peel (can use lemon peel instead)
  • 34 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon orange peel (can use lemon instead)
  • 2 tablespoons fruit juice (you can use juice to complement the citrus peel used, or even passionfruit nectar, which can be foun)


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease and flour a 12-cup Bundt pan.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, oil, 1 cup water, jelly and citrus peel. Mix according to package directions.
  3. Bake cake at 350ºF for 45-50 minutes, or until a tester inserted in cake comes out with only a few moist crumbs on it. Cool cake in pan on wire rack for 15 minutes, then carefully invert cake onto a serving platter.
  4. While cake is cooling, make glaze by mixing sifted powdered sugar and desired citrus peel. Add fruit juice, one teaspoon at a time, until glaze is pourable. Pour glaze over cooled cake. If you prefer that your glaze soaks in a bit more, pour glaze over still-warm cake. If you like more of a visible white glaze, use less juice to make glaze thicker.
