My Grandma Curley would bake this cake for me when I was a little girl. My mother especially liked it.


  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 (11 oz) can mandarin oranges
  • Frosting
  • 1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple
  • 1 (3 1/3 oz) box instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 (9 oz) carton non-dairy whipped topping


Step 1

Mix the cake mix, baking powder, oil and eggs in a large glass bowl. Add the can of mandarin orange, juice and all. Mix by hand at this point to avoid smashing the oranges.

Step 2

Pour into three 8 inch greased and floured pans. Bake 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove and allow to cool before frosting.

Step 3

Frosting: Mix the pineapple, juice and all, the vanilla pudding mix and the whipped topping. Frost the cake between layers, putting the cakes on top of the other to create a layer cake, and then frost the top of the cake.
