Mandarin Orange Cake

moonwolf_gwJuly 13, 2013

Hi everyone,

As I type this post, the mandarin orange cake is baking in the oven. It's such an easy recipe! Once it's done baking, it'll be time to make the brown sugar glaze, which is brown sugar, milk, and butter.

Pictures to arrive soon!

Completed cake with the brown sugar glaze. It smells heavenly!

It's looks delicious, Brad! When is the reunion? Please give us a report afterwards. Are you also taking your Gram's lemonade? It's so hot/humid I'm betting that lemonade won't last five minutes! Wish I had a slice of that glazed cake for later tonight... :)

I can visualize how good that is. On the 4th we spent the evening with old friends and Betsy had made a mandarian orange cake. It was three layers with a Kool Whip icing that had pineapple and coconut in it . Icing between each layer and on top,, no icing on sides, kept in the refrigerator. It was so cool, so pretty and not terrible sweet. It was perfect for a later dessert with coffee. I had never eaten mandarian orange cake before.
I came home with the recipe it is on my soon to make list.

Brad your brown sugar glaze sounds good too. Shirl36

Thank you Tricia and Shirl!

Tricia, my reunion is a week from today and for that I'm making the lemonade (2 gallons worth) and two types of cobbler-one peach, one blackberry. Of course, a container of whipped topping and a can of Reddi Whip will be in tow also lol.

Shirl36, I got the recipe from online. I don't care much for pineapple or coconut, so I was glad when I found this glaze. I may try it sometime with the icing you mentioned, but with mandarin oranges instead.

I had a little taste of some fallen crumbs. It's very, very moist and it tastes delicious!

That looks like a real treat, Brad!

I make one with the frosting like Shirl described for one of our desserts for Easter dinner every year.

This cake is just for my parents, myself, and my neighbors. I also made a batch of my gram's lemonade to share with them, too.

Well, it looks like I won't be giving them their pieces of cake until next weekend. Luckily, I read that this kind of cake can be frozen :-). The lemonade, however, looks like we'll have to drink, which is no problem lol.
