This recipe is made with Mandarin Oranges but is not the 'traditional' mandarin orange cake that we all made 20 years ago. This is a one bowl cake and looks and tastes like a carrot cake. I was introduced to it in Florida and absolutely love it. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do! Note: there is no cinnamon in this cake, I have tried to add it and I didn't like the taste with the oranges.
