2/3 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup sugar

4 eggs, slightly beaten

1 (9 ounce) can mandarin oranges, with juice

FROSTING

1 small box instant vanilla pudding

1 cup crushed pineapple, with juice

1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

Mix all the cake ingredients together in an electric mixer and beat 2 minutes on high speed. Pour batter into greased 9 x 13-inch pan or two 9-in-round cake pans that have been greased and lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 or 30 minutes; set aside to cool completely.
