Today I have an unbelievable cake recipe for you. I found this Orange Pineapple Pig Pickin’ Cake years ago in a Taste of Home cookbook. I am a pineapple lover, so I knew this cake was for me. After baking it once, I was in love! Since that time, we’ve shared it with many people, the biggest group being our church family. They love this cake and I am asked to make it quite often. Which is fine with me, since it is so easy.
Suggestion for a low to no sugar version would be to use a sugar free cake mix, omit adding the additional 1/2 of sugar to the cake mix or use a sugar substitute instead (like Splenda), and use sugar free pudding mix, sugar free cool whip and mandarin oranges and crushed pineapple in their own juice or light syrup.
To Make this Recipe You’Il Need the following ingredients:
Butter Cake mix
Can mandarin oranges
Tub of Cool Whip
Vanilla pudding mix
Can crushed pineapple
This was my grandmother’s favorite cake!
