      Now this is the recipe I grew up with. I am a Georgia girl and we called it a Pea Pickin' Cake. We called it that because it was the perfect, light cake to have after a hot day in the sun pickin peas. :) Unlike most cakes, this one doesnt sink to the bottom of your gut with a huge thump. :) I am not a big cake eater though the rest of the family adores them. However, this is the cake I am making today for my birthday because it is one cake I absolutely love!

      I substituted the 11 ounce can of mandarin oranges for the 1 cup of water in a carrot cake mix. It turned out delicious and moist. (The box called for three eggs, so that is what I used.). Thank you for giving me the courage to try this! NOTE: I did not make the frosting.
