Hi Karen,

I think the 12 oz of oil in that cake might

be excessive. Please check your recipe for us,

and let us know.

I have a cake called "Pig-Picking Cake" which is

very similar...Here is the recipe for it if you're interested. I think you'll like it too.

Pig Picking Cake


1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix

2 (11 ounce) cans mandarin oranges, drained

1 cup chopped walnuts

1 (3.4 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix

1 (15 ounce) can crushed pineapple

1 (16 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour (3)

8 inch pans.

Prepare cake mix according to package directions with the addition of mandarin oranges and nuts. Pour into the (3) prepared 8 inch pans. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool layers on wire racks.

To make the filling: In a large bowl, combine crushed pineapple with juice and pudding mix. Fold in the whipped topping. Spread between cooled cake layers.

Chill in refrigerator

Merry Christmas,

The Recipe (the oil amount 12 oz is the right amount) and the Name of the cake is correct. I have made it a million times. And I rechecked the recipe. It is a wonderful cake, not for anyone on a diet, but a very moist cake. Enjoy! Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! :)
