Mandarin orange poke cake

Yield: 12 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup All-purpose flour
1 cup Sugar
½ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1 \N Egg
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
11 ounces Mandarin oranges in light syrup
½ cup Chopped pecans
¾ cup Brown sugar, packed
3 tablespoons Butter
3 tablespoons Milk


Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 8-inch square cake pan. In medium bowl, place flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, egg, vanilla, oranges with their juice/syrup and nuts. Beat until smooth. Pour batter into prepared pan; bake in preheated oven 30 to 40 minutes, or until done in the center. When cake is nearly done, prepare topping as follows: Combine brown sugar, butter and milk in small saucepan, and bring to a boil. Boil 30 seconds.

Remove cake from oven. Carefully poke holes in cake with tines of fork.

Pour topping over cake. Let cool.

Serving Ideas : Serve with whipped topping, whipped cream or ice cream.

NOTES : Ingredients can be doubled, and cake baked in a 13x9-inch pan. The topping can be halved for less sweetness, if desired. The batter can be mixed by hand to keep some oranges intact, or mixed with an electric mixer to make them undetectable.
