This recipe for an Asparagus Bundt Cake is no doubt the most unusual dessert you've heard of. However, with the medley of orange, cinnamon, and vanilla, you'll soon think this is the best dessert you've had. Serve this cake at an event and have people try to guess what the secret ingredient is. We're sure no one will guess asparagus!
In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Add oil, eggs, asparagus, pineapple, orange zest and vanilla; mix well. Fold in pecans. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
For icing, beat cream cheese and sugar in a small bowl until smooth. Add orange zest, vanilla, orange extract and enough milk until icing reaches desired consistency. Spoon over cake, allowing icing to drip down sides.
