Wonderful cake! I've seen this cake called many different things. I just call it what it is. A pineapple orange cake. LOL! I know many of similar recipes are posted on this site, but whats another? I had some mandarins and pineapple to use up.

I do have a from scratch version posted, but wanted something easier - so called my mother and sure enough she had this recipe.

I hope the delicious picture inspires someone to get out those cake pans,( now that the weather is cooling in most places) and bake your family this delicious cake.



Enjoy!
