Recipe of the Week

Margaret R’s Pig Pickin’ Cake:

1. Grease and flour two cake pans and pre-heat your oven to 325 degrees.

1 box of cake mix (lemon, yellow, or white– in my order of preference)
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 11 oz. can of mandarin oranges (undrained)

2. Mix the above ingredients together until well blended. Pour into prepared cake pans. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until tooth-pick comes out clean, when cake is tested.

1 large carton Cool Whip (or 1 pint Heavy Cream, whipped, as a more fluid alternative)
1 pkg. instant pudding (Banana Cream, is our preference)
1 large can crushed pineapple (half the juice drained)

3. When cake is cool, combine the above ingredients and spread between cake layers and on top and side. Refrigerate a few hours before serving. Keep leftovers refrigerated!

Note: You can decorate it with cherries or pecans. When you try this cake, you’ll understand the name. It WILL make a pig out of you!
