Yellow cake with mandarin oranges in the batter. Moist and memorable. Everyone will LOVE it. Fill with a nice Italian Meringue butter cream icing or whipped cream and layer drained mandarin oranges on top of filling. Frost cake with whatever you used for the filling.
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 2 – 9 inch pans with parchment paper.
2 In a large bowl, combine yellow cake mix, eggs, mandarin oranges with juice, and oil. Beat well.
3 Divide batter into 2 – 9 inch round pans. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly tapped. Allow to cool.
4 To make the glaze: In a measuring cup combine 1/3 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir to dissolve sugar. Pour about 1/4 cup orange liquor into sugar-water mixture and brush onto cooled layers of cake.
