Leave it to Sunday Church gatherings to taste everyone's prized recipes. SInce I usually opt to bring the paper plates, plastic ware, napkins or whatever else can be bought ready made, I don't cook a dish.
JePa made a mandarin orange refrigerator cake. Smooth, refreshing, delicious. I had to have the recipe. I was so anxious to make this cake that I googled it and selected the recipe with the ingredients she said were in her version.
|Gather the crew|
MANDARIN ORANGE PINEAPPLE CAKE printed from Cooks.com1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 c. Crisco oil
1 sm. can Mandarin oranges with juice, cut up
Combine ingredients and beat 2 minutes. Grease and flour well two 9 inch pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool completely. Cut layers in half crossways making 4 halves.
1 (15 1/4 oz.) can crushed pineapple with juice
1 sm. box vanilla instant pudding
1 lg. container Cool Whip
Beat ingredients for 2 minutes. Ice between layers, over top and sides. Refrigerate.
So far it's going pretty good.
|That's parchment paper between the layers so that they don't stick.|
|I'm well aware that there is no picture five. It was a picture of the|
ugly cake before it was cut.
|No, I didn't eat the entire cake.|
I cut the rest of the cake into slices and put them in the freezer. This will be good for those days when I want something sweet.
I plan to try this again but next time I want a Key Lime cake.
I used the Tranquil photo element at Pic Monkey on my photos. It's the same thing they do to the camera to make aging film stars look good. There was no way it could get any worse since the cake as a whole didn't have a good side.
