A ‘dump’ cake (deemed by my Grandma – dump in all the ingredients and bake!) that’s so sweet you serve it with cool whip or vanilla ice cream.
Mandarin Orange Cake
This cake sounds weird, but trust me - it's yummy!
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 2 - 15 oz cans mandarin oranges
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 4 tbsp milk
- 4 tbsp butter
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Drain oranges saving 3 tbsp of juice to add to batter. Mix sugar, flour, baking soda, oranges and reserved juice, salt, eggs, and vanilla extract to blend, then beat for 3 minutes at medium speed. Pour into greased 13x9 pan and bake for 40-45 minutes.
- Bring brown sugar, milk, and butter to a boil (carmelize) and pour over warm cake. Serve with vanilla ice cream or cool whip.
