My co-worker, Tracie De Stefano, tells me she got this recipe from her ex-mother-in-law. She said the cake was so good that she asked for the recipe after the divorce! This is the kind of cake you want to refresh you on a muggy August afternoon in the shade of the verandah.

How to Make TRACIE'S MANDARIN ORANGE CAKE

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, combine cake mix, eggs, oil, and mandarin oranges. Blend at low speed until moistened (about 30 seconds); then beat at medium speed for 2 minutes.
  2. Pour batter into a 13x9" cake pan. Bake in a pre-heated 350-degree oven for 35 minutes. Cake is done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  3. Cool cake on wire rack. In the meantime, prepare frosting.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the pineapple, the whipped topping, and the pudding mix. DO NOT prepare the pudding. Just use it straight from the box. Stir ingredients well until thoroughly mixed. Spread onto cooled cake.
  5. Decorate top of cake with drained mandarin orange slices (optional).
