Harvey Wallbanger Cake

This is a wonderful recipe given to me by my Mother in Law. She was an amazing cook and baker. She absolutely loved food! I guess you could say she was a foodie before it became an “in” thing! She lived to cook. Imagine, before Food Network, Allrecipes and Food News.

Before blogging!!!

Was there ever really a time like that?

I love this cake. It starts with a cake mix so it’s quick to put together. It’s moist, tender and fabulously delish.

It get’s it’s name from the retro cocktail the Harvey Wallbanger. The cocktail is made with a mix of vodka, orange juice and a liqueur called Galliano.

The cake is topped with a fabulous glaze flavored with orange zest and coconut that finishes it off perfectly!

Harvey Wallbanger Cake



  • 1 Box 18.5 Ounces Butter Flavor Cake Mix (I use Duncan Hines)
  • 1 Box 3.5 Ounces Instant Vanilla Pudding
  • 1 Cup Vegetable Oil
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Galliano
  • 3/4 Cup Orange Juice


  • 3/4 Cup Powder Sugar
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Orange Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Orange Zest
  • 1 Tablespoon Sweetened Shredded Coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray Bundt cake pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, pudding, eggs, oil, Galliano and orange juice. With an electric mixer, beat mixture for 4 minutes. Pour into prepared pan and bake in preheat oven for 40-45 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. 
  3. Meanwhile make the glaze; in a small bowl mix all glaze ingredients until smooth. When cake is cooled, invert it onto a serving plate and drizzle with glaze.
