It’s cool, it’s creamy, it’s moist and it’s easy to have on hand because it stores in the fridge. There’s no denying the popularity of this orange-flavored cake with the creamy pineapple frosting.

Ingredients

1
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ yellow cake mix
1/2
cup vegetable oil
1/2
cup chopped walnuts, if desired
1
can (11 oz) mandarin orange segments, drained (reserve 1/3 cup liquid)
4
eggs
1
can (20 oz) crushed pineapple, undrained
1
box (4-serving size) vanilla instant pudding and pie filling mix
1/2
to 1 teaspoon grated orange peel, if desired
1
cup frozen (thawed) whipped topping

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease or lightly spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan.
  • 2 In large bowl, beat cake mix, oil, walnuts, orange segments, reserved 1/3 cup orange liquid, and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes. Pour into pan.
  • 3 Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
