This was a great cake. My husband had accidentally put in the whole 8 oz. container of sour cream instead of the 1/2 cup. The cake turned out very moist and delicious. Tried it with the 1/2 cup the next time - will definitely put in the whole cup!!
Renamed Sunshine Cake....made for easter. Pretty easy to make. Added toasted coconut which was a great addition.
Just make sure you mix the cake and the other ingredients before you put in the oranges
This is an easy and delicious recipe! The fruit gives it a light feeling that is a nice change from heavy desserts yet it's quite satisfying for those with a sweet tooth.
I added some toasted coconut on top of the icing, which was a tasty addition & nice looking garnish. Next time I'm going to try adding a few more oranges to balance the lemon flavor of the cake mix & see if that works.
I made it Mother's Day and it was a huge hit with everyone except one picky adult and her two picky kids wouldn't even try it (they won't eat anything that's not plain choc/vanilla). This one is definitely going in my arsenal of summer recipes.
Absolutely wonderful! As a point of clarification, I "beat" the batter with the mandarin oranges on a low setting, which broke up and dispersed the oranges. Assuming that is what was intended, but it wasn't noted in the recipe.
THE MOST DELICIOUS CAKE I HAVE EVER MADE. MADE IT FOR A FAMILY LUNCHEON, EVERYBODY THOUGHT IT HAD COME FROM A "CAKE" SHOP. THEY COULD NOT BELIEVE IT WAS "HOMEMADE". VERY MOIST AND FRESH TASTING....
Yum! This is a moist cake. I really could not taste the oranges, just the lemon and the pineapple. The frosting at first tasted a bit grainy, but I just kept mixing it and it was better. I did add toasted coconut on top. Thank you for the refreshing dessert.
I used yellow cake mix instead of lemon, a cup of vegetable oil for the sour cream and a 15 oz can of mandarin oranges and this was cool and refreshing.
