If you're looking for a blast from the past, try 1970s Harvey Wallbanger Cake, an easy vintage recipe that's a big crowd-pleaser. This cake tastes exactly like the traditional Harvey Wallbanger recipe with orange juice, Galliano, and vodka. It even has a glaze on top with the same ingredients, so you get the distinct, sweet flavor of the cocktail all throughout the cake. This particular recipe is very easy because it actually tastes better when made with yellow cake mix than when made by scratch. Serve it with whipped cream and raspberries on top for the perfect final touch.

Many years ago I ordered a Harvey Wallbanger drink just to find out what on earth it was. What it was was GOOD, lol! So is this cake. It is also not that hard to make and the raspberries are like a taste of paradise. Put a dollop of cream or good ice cream on top and you will think you have gone to heaven, lol!

This brings back memories! My father used to make this when I would come home from college for the holidays. He gave me the recipe (not sure where he got it originally) and I think I still may have the card with it. I made it several times after I graduated and it was always quite popular. It'd be fun to try making it from scratch, but my father and I both used cake mix for it. I don't think he used a glaze for it, and I might try that when I make it again.

I love flavorful cakes that are done Bundt or tube pan style. I think they are particularly nice with a glaze over the top. I have never had a Harvey Wallbanger nor have I had Galliano. Could someone tell me what the flavor of Galliano is? I have made a 7 flavor cake that has flavorings of rum, coconut, butter, almond, vanilla, etc. That was delicious and a big hit. I'd like to try the Harvey Wallbanger recipe soon.

You can easily 'google' the word GALLIANO and get a full description (also, there are 'generic versions' of many popular liquers or liquors that are far-less expensive. F. McE

I have never had a Harvey Wallbanger so I would not be able to say whether this would remind me of one or not. The pudding added to it would make it pretty moist. I think you can buy mixes with the pudding already in the box.. Maybe that is just chocolate. Baking a cake in a bundt pan always looks so cool.
