This is a good recipe but I think 45 minutes was too long to bake, mine is pretty dark, but still tastes good. Thanks!

I had two cans of mandarin oranges in my pantry and was wondering what to do with it! So I found this lovely recipe from Lizzie and it tastes fantastic. It's very sweet but it pleases the sweet side of me :-) !!! The cake is very moist and it is very easy to prepare. *_*

This is a fabulous recipe! I got it years ago from a friend in Washington. It is a bit on the sweet side, but if you love SWEET, you'll find this fabulously moist and wonderful. It is more of a fall/winter recipe as opposed to the one from a cake mix with the cool whip, pineapple, instant pudding (also a 5*). Try it folks if you like moist/sweet!!
