Mandarin Orange Cake

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

2 cups white sugar
2 cups flour
2 eggs
1 can (8 ounces) Mandarin oranges, drained
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts
Frosting:
1-1/2 cups brown sugar
6 tablespoons milk
6 tablespoons butter

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in bowl and beat two to three minutes. This seems very thick, but oranges break up and cake gets moist. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes in a 9x12-inch pan. There is no shortening in this cake. While the cake is baking, make the frosting. Bring just to a boil and pour over cake while cake is still hot from oven. When times comes to serve this cake, I use a dollop of whipped topping on each piece tinted with orange for Halloween and Thanksgiving; red or green for Christmas or any other color you like.
