Mandarin Orange Cake

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by Jen Andrews

This is the moistest cake I have ever eaten. The frosting is a hit with people who don't like regular frosting. I have also left the cake unfrosted and then frosted individuals pieces as it was eaten. The cake and the frosting kept covered in the fridge for about a week. Cooking time includes chilling time.

Top Review by Ann Cecile

This is a incredibly light and delicious dessert. The first time I had it, my neighbor brought over two slices on a plate. The next day, my husband asked if we could take the empty plate back to get more. It actually reminds me of something that would be served at a gourmet Italian restaurant. When I make this cake, I use 3 - 9 inch round cake pans and bake for 20-25 minutes. This allows for layers of the fluffy frosting - absolutely heavenly!
