    box yellow cake mix
  • 3/4 c
    vegetable oil

How To Make aloha cake

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking dish; set aside.
  • 2
    Mix together the cake mix, oil, eggs, mandarin oranges and vanilla extract with electric mixer. Beat 2 minutes until well-blended. The oranges will break up into tiny bits during the beating.
  • 3
    Pour batter into baking dish, and bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool completely. You can also make this in a jelly roll pan (decreasing baking time to about 15 minutes.)
  • 4
    For the frosting: Beat the coconut pudding and pineapple together for 2 minutes or until thick. Fold in the whipped topping. Spread over the cooled cake and chill until ready to serve. Serve chilled.
