Fantastic Cake

I didn't call this recipe "Fantastic Cake" for nothing.  I think you will enjoy the flavors of the pineapple and Mandarin oranges with the whipped topping on this cake.  See this recipe below (or in my cookbook on page 174.)  After you try this cake, think about your need to satisfy your chocolate craving :) and try my Moist Chocolate Cake on page 175.  Our children often request my Angel Food Cake recipe on page 176 for their birthday cake.  We love it with whipped cream and strawberries.

Fantastic Cake

1 gluten-free yellow or white cake mix
one 8-ounce can crushed pineapple, with juice
1 can mandarin oranges, with juice (reserve 6 segments for topping)
2 eggs
¼ cup cooking oil

6 reserved mandarin orange segments
1/3 cup crushed pineapple, drained
one 4-ounce package cream cheese, softened
one 8-ounce container whipped topping

If gluten-free cake mix yield is only one 9-inch round cake, divide the topping ingredients in half, or buy an additional gluten-free cake mix.

1.      Mix cake mix, pineapple with  juice, mandarin oranges with juice (minus six), eggs and oil on medium speed for about one minute and bake at 350ºF for 28 to 35 minutes.
2.      To make topping, combine mandarin oranges, pineapple, and cream cheese in mixing bowl and beat well. Fold in whipped topping.
3.      Spread topping over cooled cake when ready to serve.

Serves 10 to 12
