Orange cake with pineapple frosting - perfect for spring!
I made this for a big family picnic tomorrow, Memorial Day. I made two cakes, this one and a Texas sheetcake. One for the citrus lovers and one for the chocoholics. Both cakes were very easy to make. I made a couple of slight changes to the Sunshine cake. I started with a Duncan Hines French Vanilla cake mix. I like a more intense orange flavor than the mandarin oranges would give it so I grated the rind of one orange and added that to the batter, plus 1/2 tsp of orange extract. I used french vanilla instant pudding for the topping. I mixed it with the crushed pineapple and let it set for a while before adding the Cool Whip, then I refrigerated this while the cake was baking. After the cake cooled, I frosted it and it looked great as it was, but I decided to 'gild the Lily' just a bit. I opened another small can of mandarin oranges and drained them, then patted them totally dry between paper towels, I arranged them in a sunburst pattern on the center of the cake. No question as to the name of the cake now.
This family-favorite recipe delivers a simple tea-time cake with the bright, sunshine-y flavors of lemon and vanilla.
