Pineapple-Mandarin Orange Cake

Yellow Cake Mix
3/4 Cup of oil
4 eggs
1 small can of mandarin oranges (drain 1/2 of the juice off, then pour into mix)
1 Large can of crushed pineapple (pour 1/2 of the can into mix. Save the other half for topping)

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl with a mixer. Then pour into pan or glass dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. As soon as cake comes out of pan, put it in the refrigerator for 20 min. (refrigeration is optional, you can just allow it to cool)


One 12 oz. carton of cool whip
One package of instant vanilla pudding (do not prepare, put it in the bowl like it is.)
Drain the rest of the pineapple and put all ingredients into the bowl and mix with mixer. When the cake is cool put the icing on cake. The cake should then be refrigerated if you have any left overs.

Louanne I hear ya on that one. It is so delicious and doesn't make you feel like you just ate a mound of sugar either because it is so light and fluffy. Thanks for the comment!!
