Mandarin Orange Dream Cake

Dream cake recipes are always fantastic, especially if you're an orange and cream combo fan. But get a load of this Mandarin Orange Dream Cake for an even more decadent dessert.
  • 1 package yellow cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 small can mandarin oranges, undrained
  • 1 large container Cool Whip
  • 1 small can crushed pinappple, undrained
  • 1 small package vanilla instant pudding (4 serving)
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange extract*
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Combine cake mix, eggs, oil, and manadarin oranges in bowl and mix with electric beaters til fluffy.
  3. Pour into a 13x9 inch lightly greased pan and bake for 30 min or til done (a toothpick will come out clean).
  4. Combine Cool Whip, pineapple, extract and pudding in bowl, beat with electric beaters about 3-4 minutes or until mixed and set.
  5. Spread on cooled cake.
* I don't use the orange extract.  I just use 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.  That is the way my dear mother-in-law made hers and that is the recipe she passed down to me.  My hubby loves this cake!
