Mandarin Orange Cake

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Miss Erin C.

This was a favorite cake growing up. The middle gets sunken, all good from the topping sinking into it. You may wnat to double the topping so you can pour extra over the edge pieces of the cake, they don't seem to get as much of the topping sinking in as it all flows to the middle of the cake.

Excellent cake! Very different from any other mandarin orange cake I've had. This would be a great cake to bring to a potluck. It has a gooey, caramelly taste and is rich and filling. Quite wonderful. A real winner! Note: I used two small cans (11 oz. size) of mandarin oranges, drained, which measured 2 cups once drained.
