Recipe: Sunshine Cake

This is a favorite family recipe. A family friend made it for a women’s get together for church when I was a girl. We got the recipe from her and the rest is history. So here’s to you Nancy!

SunShine Cake

What you’ll need:

1 Yellow Box Cake mix

3/4 cup Cooking oil

4 Eggs

1 11oz can of Mandarin oranges (juice included)

1 8oz container of Cool Whip thawed

1 20oz can of crushed Pineapple (juice included)

1 small box of Vanilla Pudding


Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees

Grease a 9×13 pan

Mix cake mix, oil, eggs and Mandarin oranges together

Pour into greased pan and bake for 35 minutes.

Allow to cool completely


Thoroughly mix Cool Whip, pudding and pineapple together

Spread on top

You can serve immediately or place in the refrigerator to allow topping to firm slightly. Either way is fine but I like it chilled better.
