Mandarine Orange Cake

Ashley Muller


This cake is super moist and light & fluffy!! It is great at room temp or right out of the fridge.

This is a cake that my Grandmother's best friend would make for any luncheon or whenever they played cards. This has been one of my favorites ever since I was a little girl.

  3. Pour batter equally into 2 8" round cake pans, greased and with wax paper on the bottom.
  4. Bake at 375* for about 30 min. or until knife inserted comes out clean.
