We had a special "God and Country" service at church today.
There was lots of red, white and blue, wonderful music
and a great sermon.
After the service, we had lunch in our Family Life Center.
The meal was provided by the church,
so our responsibility was dessert!
This recipe has been around for a long time
and is called by several names.
It's cool and light... an excellent
My recipe (which was my mom's) is called
Hawaiian Wedding Cake.
Here it is:
1 butter recipe cake mix
1/2 cup oil
1 11 oz. can mandarin oranges, chopped in juice
Blend mix, oil, and eggs.
Gently fold in oranges and juice.
Pour into 3 round cake pans that have
been greased and floured.
Bake at 325 for 25-30 mins.
1 8 oz Cool Whip topping
1 20 oz can crushed pineapple (in juice)
drain and reserve juice
1 small box instant vanilla pudding
Mix topping, pineapple, half the juice, and pudding.
Spread between layers and on top of cake.
Store in refrigerator.
This is what I brought home.
I guess people liked it! :-)
