- 1 stick butter, melted
- 1/4 cup vegetable or canola oil
- 1 box white cake mix (18.25 ounce)
- 3 eggs
- 3 cans mandarin oranges (11 ounces)
- 1 tsp lemon extract
- 1 box orange jello (3.4 ounces)
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 container Cool Whip (8 ounces)
To make the cake, combine butter, oil, cake mix, eggs, lemon extract, and 1 can mandarin oranges WITH juice. Mix on medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 24-27 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately poke holes all over cake with the end of a wooden spoon or skewer. Set aside.
Stir together 1 cup BOILING water and orange jello, stirring until completely dissolved. Pour slowly and evenly over cake, allowing it to soak in the holes.
Place cake in refrigerator for 2-3 hours before serving. When ready to serve, drain remaining 2 cans of Mandarin Oranges. Spread Cool Whip evenly over cake and top with oranges. Slice and ENJOY!
