Mandarin Orange Poke Cake

While I was cleaning out my pantry last weekend, I stumbled upon three cans of mandarin oranges. Rather than throw them away, I decided to find something to make with them. While searching, I stumbled upon this poke cake recipe on recipe land. I modified it from the original because of my husband's nut allergies. The original contains 1/2 cup of chopped pecans. It was super simple to make and absolutely delicious!

Mandarin Orange Poke Cake - Modified from Recipe Land

Cake Ingredients:
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 can (11oz) Mandarin Oranges (in light syrup), do not drain

Topping Ingredients:
  • 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp Butter
  • 3 Tbsp Milk
Directions:

In a large bowl, mix all cake ingredients. Pour into a greased 8x8 pan and cook for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Just before taking cake out of the oven, prepare the topping. To do this, place all topping ingredients in a sauce pan over med heat until they come to a boil (stir frequently to prevent sugar from burning). Once boiling, stir for 30 seconds and then remove from heat.

Remove cake from oven and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes. Poke holes in the cake using a fork. Pour topping over the cake and let sit uncovered to cool.
