the most delicious part of this cake is the lemon butter cream frosting …it is tasty …i use real butter ….the presentation is equally as beautiful and the cake is very moist and sinful =)
Very simple to make. I also garnished the base of the cake with fresh pineapple chunks and maraschino cherries. I kept it in the fridge because of the fruit. Very nice presentation.
What you need:
This was my grandmother’s favorite cake!
Mandarin Orange Pineapple Cake
1 box Duncan Hines Butter Cake mix
1/2 cup Wesson oil
1 11- ounce can mandarin oranges
1/2 cup sugar
1 12 ounce tub of Cool Whip
small instant vanilla pudding mix
1 16 oz. can crushed pineapple
How to make it:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cake mix, oil, oranges with juice, sugar and eggs. Mix at medium speed for 2 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees in 3 greased, floured and lined with wax paper pans for about 20 minutes or until center of the cake bounces back when touched. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely on cooling racks.
Drain juice from pineapple and set aside (If the icing seems to be too thick you can use it to thin it out a bit).
Mix pineapple with the instant vanilla pudding. Stir in Cool Whip. Frost the cake according to these directions. Store the cake in the refrigerator. I think it is better the next day.
