    Mandarin Orange Cake

    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    1 package yellow, butter or French vanilla cake mix

    1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil

    3 eggs

    1 15 oz can mandarin oranges, un drained and separated

    1 8 oz can crushed pineapple, un drained

    1 3.4 oz box vanilla or French vanilla instant pudding mix

    1 13 oz cool whip, thawed whipped topping


    Add the cake mix, oil, eggs and mandarin oranges with liquid to a large mixing bowl. Remove 6-8 orange segments and set aside for garnish.

    Using a electric mixer or a stand mixer with the paddle attachment blend together the cake ingredients. Pour batter into two greased and floured round cake pans.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes or until golden brown and the cake springs back. Remove from oven and let cool in pans 10 minutes.

    Remove from pans and cool completely on a baking rack. Frost when cakes are completely cooled.
    Prepare the frosting by adding the dry pudding mix and un drained pineapple together in a large bowl and mix with a spoon.

    Fold in cool whip until well blended. Frost both layers and sides of cake. Garnish with remaining mandarin orange segments. Keep refrigerated before serving.
