Parrot Head Wannabe

In the opening line of the song Margaritaville, Jimmy Buffett sings of "nibblin' on sponge cake."

While Scott Hutcheson has the Margaritaville attitude, he also has another cake suggestion for you to get into that island state of mind.

Tequila Cake 


  • 1 18-1/2 ounce yellow cake mix
  • 1 1-3/4 ounce (4-serving size) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cold milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup tequila

Lime Glaze

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup tequila


  • 1 teaspoon margarita salt

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter and flour a 12 cup Bundt pan. Combine all cake ingredients and use an electric mixer to beat for two minutes. Pour into prepared pan and bake for one hour. Cool in pan then invert onto serving plate.
To make the glaze melt butter in a saucepan and then stir in the lime juice and sugar. Boil for five minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in the tequila. Prick top of cooled cake multiple times with fork then drizzle glaze on top. Sprinkle top with margarita salt.
