Mom's Tips

September 27th, 2011 by Jim Field

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 (11 oz.) can mandarin oranges, drained

Mix for 3 minutes.  Divide batter into 3 round cake pans that have been greased and floured.  Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees.  Tip out and cool.  For the filling:

  • 1 (20 oz.) can crushed pineapple
  • 1 (3 oz.) box instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 (8 oz.) container Cool Whip

Mix pudding in pineapple (with juice) until thickened.  Fold in Cool Whip.  Frost filling between layers of cake, saving some for top (and sides, as desired).  Refrigerate.
