1 (18.25 ounce) package

1 (11 ounce) can
mandarin oranges, with juice
1 (3.5 ounce) package
instant French vanilla pudding
1 (20 ounce) can

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.
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.
This was a super cake! I tested this out on Sunday for dessert after dinner and my family gave it rave reviews as well. It has a wonderful blend of flavors and the frosting was a perfect topping. I was testing this out to see if I will serve it for Easter Dinner and I can tell you I think I will be making it tons before the Easter holiday!
Wonderful cake! My family asks for it all the time now!
