My mom makes a very similar cake to this easy orange angel food cake but she uses crushed pineapple and it is amazing. The cake is super moist and packed with flavor from the canned fruit. However, some of my kids don’t like pineapple so we decided to try out an orange cake and see what happens. The result is a really moist cake that is packed with the delicious mandarin flavor. Everyone loves this cake!

- Cool whip; optional
Equipment you need:
How to make orange angel food cake:
- First, pour the canned mandarin oranges into a mixing bowl. Use a potato masher or your hand mixer to crush the mandarin oranges.
- Then pour the angel food cake mix into the bowl with the crushed mandarin oranges.
- After you’ve added the cake mix, mix them until well blended using medium speed.
- Next, pour the mixture into the cake pan. DO NOT spray the pan with non stick spray first. You could also bake this angel food cake in the traditional tube pan if you wanted to. You would need to increase the baking time to about 35-40 minutes.
- Lastly, bake your orange angel food cake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Once your cake is baked, allow it to cool completely. I’ve made the mistake of not allowing it to cool, once!
- After the cake is completely cooled, cover with the optional whipped topping and enjoy! If you happen to have leftovers, be sure to store them in refrigerator in a covered dish.
Try some other flavor ideas:
- Use crushed pineapple instead of the canned mandarin oranges.
- Try a jar of cherries/
- Want more orange flavor? Add in 1/2 tsp of orange extract.
