Have you ever heard of such a thing as Mandarin Orange Cake? I never have so of course I had to try it. I found this recipe in “Amish Family Favorites” cookbook and the recipe was by Mrs. David Ray Yoder. The recipe was very vague so I wasn’t sure if it would turn out but it did. I rewrote the recipe so you could understand it. After some research about this cake I saw where it was common to frost it with a Whipped Pineapple Frosting. Mrs. Yoder didn’t use this frosting, she just put a dollop of fresh whipped cream on hers. You can make yours either way you would like.

Below is the link to the Whipped Pineapple Frosting:
