I Think It's My Favorite Cake

If I had to pick a favorite, this cake would probably be it. My mom's best friend used to make it for birthdays and I have always liked it.

I don't know if this is her exact recipe, but I googled the ingredients and came up with this one. We called it Pig Cake. No, I don't know why.

I think it's a great way to send off summer. Before the heavy foods of fall and winter grace our ovens. A light and fruity treat, the perfect end to a grilled meal.

Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 yellow cake mix
1 11 oz can mandarin oranges plus juice
2 T flour
3 eggs
3/4 C oil

Frosting:
1 8 oz carton cool whip
1 8 oz can crushed pineapple and juice
1 small pkg instant pudding (I use vanilla, recipe calls for coconut flavored)

Directions:
1. Mix cake ingredients together, spread in lightly greased 9X13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes, until it tests done. Let cool completely, then frost.

I made this for Memorial Day barbecues and as I am typing this, want to make it again!
