My mom has been here to help with the baby and she has made some yummy food & treats for us. This one was too good not to share - and yes, I am eating it as I speak...or type....

Mandarin Orange Cake

2 c. flour
2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla
2 (11 oz.) cans madarin oranges

6 Tb. butter
1 c. brown sugar
6 Tb. milk
1 pkg. cook & serve vanilla pudding
1 pint whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1/3 c. powdered sugar

Mix cake ingredients together until blended. Pour in greased 9x13 pan. Bake 35-40 min. at 350 degrees. While cake is still hot, poke holes with toothpick or fork every 1-2 inches. Mix butter, brown sugar, and milk in saucepan. Boil 2 minutes. Pour mixture evenly over the top of warm cake. Prepare vanilla pudding as directed. Spread over cake. Chill. Whip the whipping cream, vanilla, and powdered sugar together. Top chilled cake with whipped cream. Keep refrigerated.

**optional: sprinkle cake with extra can of oragnes, drained and/or toasted sliced almonds

This cake has more of a carmelly flavor than an orange flavor. It's so moist and SO YUMMY!
