Mountain Dew Cake and Mountain Dew Pie

Look, I’m not in charge of the Mountain Dew-to-Gamers connection, but I do like playing with it. People specifically asked for these recipes when I noted I had made them, so…

Mountain Dew CAKE
1 box Duncan Hines Orange Supreme cake mix
1 box Jello instant pudding mix – lemon
4 eggs
1 teaspoon lime flavoring (or extract, I refer flavoring)
green food Coloring if desired, to your preferred neon hue
½ cup vegetable oil
1 cup Mountain Dew (fresh and fizzy)

1 cup sugar
1 stick butter
1/2 cup Mountain Dew

 Preheat oven to 325
 Liberally coat bunt pan with nonstick spray
 Add all cake ingredients together and beat for 2 minutes
 Pour into pan and bake 50-60 minutes at 325
 About 5 minutes before cake is done, make the glaze
 Add all glaze ingredients together in a sauce pan and boil for 2-3 minutes
 Once cake comes out, pour glaze slowly over cake
 Leave in pan for 20-30 minutes to let glaze soak in, or up to 24 hours in fridge
 Remove. Color will be much darker on the outside than within each slice.
 Enjoy

Mountain Dew PIE
This is NOT a cheesecake, but an effort at pure Mtn Dew as a pie filling.
1 frozen pie crust, in pan
2 liters Mountain Dew (to make 12 oz. Mountain Dew Reduction)
2/3 cup sugar
8 tbsp flour
6 tbsp butter, diced

 To make a Mtn Dew reduction, simmer 2 liters of Mtn Dew over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 hours. You should reduce the volume by at least half, and up to 65% or so. It doesn’t matter if the Mtn Dew is fresh, since you’ll lose all the carbonation anyway.
 Preheat oven to 395
 Pour 12 oz of Mtn Dew reduction in the pie crust, while the crust is still frozen
 Mix the sugar and flour, then sprinkle the mix evenly over the surface of the Mtn Dew reduction. Yes, it’s powder on syrup.
 As best you can, scatter the diced butter evenly over the flour/sugar mix.
 Cover edges of crust with foil.
 Carefully move into over. Bake for 30 min.
 Reduce temp to 340, then bake for another 30 min.
 Remove from oven, and take off foil. Pie filling is now a hot sticky plasma, so be careful. Fully cool, preferably on a stone or tile countertop.
 Once fully cooled, chill covered in fridge for 6-24 hours.
