I made this cake Saturday, because our niece Hilary came to visit. That girl does love to come to Auntie Pattycakes and Uncle Bobby's house...and eat the goodies made especially for her. ;) I love recipes like this that are quick and easy to make, but are delicious as well. Hilary did enjoy this cake, and took some for the road. I have seen many versions, and names, for this cake. I have always called it Pig Pickin' Cake, and this is how I make it. It really is tasty!
1 box yellow cake mix (18.25 oz.)
3 large eggs
1/2 C vegetable oil
1 11oz. can Mandarin oranges, with juice
Mix all ingredients until well blended and smooth. Pour into 9x13 pan that has been prepared with oil/flour baking spray, like Pam. Bake at 350F for 35-45 minutes. Let cake cool before frosting.
1 8oz. carton Cool Whip, thawed
1 20oz. can crushed pineapple, juice reserved
1 3 1/2 oz. box instant vanilla pudding
Mix all ingredients until well blended, if frosting is too thick, add a little of the reserved pineapple juice. Spread over cooled cake, and refrigerate until ready to serve. This cake is even tastier the second day...if you have any left!
