READY IN: 37mins




  • Place a rack in center of oven and preheat to 350F.
  • Generously grease two 9-inch round cake pans.
  • Dust with powdered cake mix.
  • Shake excess into mixing bowl.
  • Set the pans aside.
  • Blend cake mix, mandarin oranges with juice, melted butter, oil, and eggs in a large mixing bowl with electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute.
  • Scrape down sides of bowl.
  • Beat at medium speed 2 to 3 minutes longer.
  • Divide the batter between the two pans and place pans in oven side by side.
  • Bake until golden brown and top springs back when lightly pressed with your finger- 24 to 27 minutes.
  • Remove racks from oven and cool on wire rack for 10 minutes.
  • Run a dinner knife around the edge and invert each cake onto a rack, then invert them again onto a plate so they are right side up.
  • While they are still warm, poke hole in the top of each layer with a wooden skewer.
  • Pour the pineapple juice over the layers so that the cake soaks up all the juice.
  • Let the layers cool for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the frosting.
  • Put all frosting ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  • Stir until well combined and pudding is dissolved.
  • Place one cake layer, right side up, onto a serving platter.
  • Spread the top with frosting.
  • Place second layer, right side up, on top of the first.
  • Frost the top and sides of the cake.
  • Store this cake, lightly covered in wax paper, in refrigerator, up to one week.
