A dessert that gives away happiness and sunshine in every bite. This cake is like clouds; light and fluffy. A sponge-like homemade cake that is suited for any occasion. It is fruity, refreshing, luscious, and simply heaven!
I have made this last weekend as a gift for my niece’s birthday. She loved it! This cake was like rays of sunshine. It put smiles on everyone’s faces. It rained praises that day. Guests asked me for the recipe, congratulated me for a job well done. I felt like the celebrant and the Pineapple-Orange Sunshine Cake was the star. One thing I told them over and over was that they will be surprised at how easy it is to make.
1 box yellow cake mix with pudding
1 (11 oz.) can mandarin oranges, including juice
½ cup oil
4 large eggs
1 package of Jell-O No Bake Cheesecake mix

1 cup of sour cream

How to make Pineapple-Orange Sunshine Cake
Step 1: In a mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, oranges including the juice, and oil. Beat on medium speed until well blended.
Step 2: Beat the eggs one at a time, making sure to beat well every after addition.
Step 3: Empty the batter into the greased and floured 9×13-inch pan or 2 9-inch round or square pans.
Step 4: Place inside the oven and bake on 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Step 5: Once done, remove from the oven and cool the cake on a wire rack while preparing the frosting.
To make the Frosting

Step 2: For the final step, generously frost the cooled cake and chill.
