Orange Pineapple Cake

For the fish fry, we were also asked to bring a dessert. I took this as an opportunity to try something new. I've had this recipe for Orange Pineapple Cake for quite a while, but have never had the chance to make it. Well, it was delicious--very moist. I will definitely make it again.

Orange Pineapple Cake

1 package of Butter Cake Mix ( I used Duncan Hines)
1 egg
1 can of mandarin orange sections
1 large can of crushed pineapple
1 container of Cool Whip
1 (3 oz.) package of instant vanilla pudding

Make cake mix using package directions plus the addition of 1 egg. Fold drained orange sections into the cake batter. Bake in 2 greased and floured 9 inch pans according to directions on cake mix. When cool, fill and frost with mixture of undrained pineapple and dry pudding mix stirred into the Cool Whip topping.


  1. Mmmm. I'll bet it's good. It sounds similar to Kay's Orange Sherbet Cake, which is one of my very favorites!!

  2. Looks so yummy mom! Man, we really wish we lived close enough to take part in the bounty of all nana's cookin'! It looks like retirement and has unleashed the Paula Deen in you!
