Mandarin Orange Cake with Pineapple Frosting

"My aunt made this for Easter, and everyone loved it...no leftovers:(It is very simple and makes a nice presentation. I am not a big fan of mandarin oranges, but this cake is divine. I chop up the oranges just because I don't like big hunks of oranges, but you can leave them whole if you wish. A must try!! Baking time is approximate."

    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.

    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.

I am a single gal, living on my own; currently working as an Occupational Therapist & living in Cumberland, MD. (It is "God's Country" out here...beautiful!) I LOVE to cook and bake, and love anything that looks, tastes, smells, or even closely resembles a veggie. I LOVE moo-cows, and therefore, cannot bring myself to eat any part of the adorable critters (i.e. NO RED MEAT!!) I love the outdoors, and pride myself on being the master griller on the fire pit. My mother's side of the family is 100% Polish, so I have an inborn passion for cooking...unfortunately, along with that comes a love of eating, too!! But, hey..u only live once, so I say "EAT, DRINK, and BE MERRY!!!"
