Made this yesterday for my mom's birthday and everybody loved it. I used a cup of coconut instead of the pecans. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to add the mandarin oranges with the cake stuff, so I just threw everything in and after beating for 4 minutes, there was no trace of the madarins. Perhaps I was supposed to add them after beating, but it tasted good anyways!
I've been making this cake for a long time. I love how light and refreshing it tastes. Just made it today for my birthday! I reduced the eggs to 2 and also used 1/2 cup of applesauce and 1/4 cup of oil. Still came out very moist. I didn't use the pecans in the cake, but I topped the frosting with some chopped almonds as that is what I had on hand.
delicious, light & refreshing. Thanks!
This is an excellent cake. Light, refreshing, and not too sweet. Everyone should try it.
This is such a nice summer cake. My Nanny used to make this in the summertime for us. Great recipe ! I fold the oranges into the mix so they do not all break up.
It was very good, used Orange cake mix, took to Easter Dinner.
This cake is absolutely delicious; so refreshing this time of year. Due to personal preference I did not add the pecans; however, I did add about 3/4 cup coconut to the frosting. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this lovely dessert.
This was a very good and easy cake to make. I beat the orange segments into the batter and also added a bit of orange extract. I did not bother with the dressing. Just put on some cool whip and found it was enough. Thanks for the easy dessert Manda
This cake was a hit at our family reunion. Very moist and delicious. Handed out the recipe many times.
