Maybe We Can Lure Spring In With a Yummy Cake!
It was a gray and dreary day here today...and I've been longing for sunshine and shorts, and the warmth to get into my car, put the top down and go for a ride with the warm breeze in my hair.
Suddenly, into my head popped a vision of a light, bright, airy and delicious cake that my mom-in-law made the first time she and I met.
It's called "Pea Pickin' Cake" and reminds me so much of warm days surrounded by family. Best of all, it's super easy!
*This is the recipe as she wrote it down for me...I don't have exact measurements of cans or product sizes, but whenever I make it, I just grab what looks right and it comes out yummy!!
1 yellow cake mix
1 small can mandarin oranges with juice
1/2 cup cooking oil
Beat all ingredients together until well blended, Use 3 greased and floured cake pans.
Bake in 350 degree oven about 25 minutes or until center of cake springs back when touched.
1 large cool whip
1 large can crushed pineapple with juice
1 small box instant vanilla pudding
Combine pineapples and juice with the pudding mix. Fold into cool whip. Spread between layers and on top of cooled cake. Refrigerate overnight.
