Linda's notes for this recipe:
This is a very light, moist cake....great for summer. The recipe came from Southern Lady magazine. I baked one last night to take to Sunday School this morning....4 pieces are already gone and we haven't left the house yet. Make this one a day before you need's better the second day. If you can't find an orange cake mix, use white or yellow and increase the extract to 1 tsp. You can also use more mandarin oranges if you like.
Make it Your Way...

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Grease and flour a tube cake pan. Or you can spray the pan with vegetable oil spray.
Combine the cake mix, sugar and flour in a large bowl.
Add the sour cream, oil, and orange extract. Mix at low speed with a mixer until combined.
Add the eggs, one at a time.
Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes.
Add in the mandarin oranges and mix on low speed until all ingredients are well combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 - 50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the cake comes out clean.
Let the cake cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Remove the cake from the pan and let it finish cooling on a wire rack.
Combine the orange juice and confectioner's sugar until the mixture is smooth. Drizzle this glaze over the cake.
