    Doing it Right's Note:

    A very healthy, light cake. A great "treat" for those watching their food intake. I make this cake when I'm really craving something sweet, but can't afford the calories of a typical dessert.

      All the way 5 stars! I was looking for a recipe with less sugar over less fat. This has both. I did have to use a regular cake mix since I've never found a reduced fat one. I used DH's pineapple supreme. And I used four medium sized eggs including the yolks. This is one of the most moist, flavorful cakes I have ever tasted. The mandarin oranges lend so well to the cake it's better than the oil in it. The cake bakes beautifully, I did, however, follow the directions on the cake box since I'm at a high altitude. The frosting could be eaten alone, it's so light, full of flavor. On the cake they are a mouthful of heaven. If you're looking to lower sugar content and/or fat for a dessert, this is it! Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

      So easy to whip up and it tastes great. I made this to take to my son's house for his Memorial Day cookout. I used Pillsbury's sugar-free yellow cake mix and followed the rest of the recipe as written. It comes together in a flash. I made the cake the night before and then frosted it the next day. Everyone loved the cake and didn't even realize that it was sugar free. Thanks for a great cake that I can eat and not feel guilty about. Made for Diabetic Cooking Tag Game.

      I made this cake for a church social. It was great, if my kids had their way they would have eaten it before we got to the social. I used just the regular ingredients (not sugar-free) and it was moist and yummy! I also used just eggs. not the ones in the recipe. I will definately keep this recipe. Thanks!!
