Orange Twist Cake

I would like to take a moment and thank Linda for allowing me to post her wonderful recipe.

I like to doctor up cake mixes. The mandarin orange keeps the cake moist and flavorful. This cake would be great for any occasion. Easter right around the corner. This would be a great dessert on any table.

Well my friends, I have a few people asking me when I am going in the kitchen and make dinner. I have some hungry folks on my hands. I think tonight will be clean out the refrigerator. I have some leftovers that need to be eaten before they go bad.

  12. I prefer orange flavors over lemon and lime any day so this cake is perfect for me - is that candied orange peel - did you mention that and I missed it?

  15. Hi doggybloggy,

    The orange peel on top is just plain orange peel but I prefer to use the candied. Thanks for stopping by.

  24. I'm making this cake right now for our Mother's Day celebration! I adore mandarin oranges and with a cake mix it makes this a pretty easy-to-whip-up dessert idea.

  25. I made this yesterday for Mother's Day and it was a hit. The only change I made was that I used a lemon cake mix (I didn't have a vanilla mix and thought that the lemon would add more citrus flavour anyway). It was great! I also used an Orange Cream Cheese icing to top it all off. Delicious!

    Thanks!
