This Mandarin Orange Angel Food Cake is so good! It only takes 2 ingredients to make this delicious easy dessert.
2 Ingredient Mandarin Orange Angel Food Cake
One of my favorite recipes that we have made is the Pineapple Angel Food Cake! It is so easy to make and tastes amazing. I have been wondering how I could adapt this recipe to include other fruits. This week I decided to try making it with Mandarin Oranges. Oh my goodness!!!!
This recipe takes a tiny bit more work than the Pineapple Angel Food Cake but not much. The tiny bit of extra work is so worth it! The cake turns our light and fluffy and tastes amazing. I love that it is so easy to make and looks like you spent hours on it.
Large Mixing Bowl - We are big fans of this glass batter bowl that has a handle. It makes it easy to mix ingredients and keeps the mixing bowl steady on the counter.
9x13 casserole baking dish – This size baking dish fits this cake perfectly
Heat resistant potholders - A couple of years ago we had a fire scare when we didn't realize we had turned a burner on and a cloth potholder caught fire. Thankfully we walked by the kitchen and saw the smoke and were able to get it out ourselves. Since then we have only used these heat-resistant potholders.
I walked away from the batter for a few minutes and came back to it overflowing over the bowl. Make sure you keep an eye out your batter and do not let it sit for too long.
It starts bubbling and well you may end up with a bit of a mess. I mixed the Angel Food Cake and Mandarin Oranges in a mixing bowl. If you want to save yourself a step you can pour both into the baking dish and mix in the dish.

For the pineapple cake, do you use juice pack or syrup pack?
I mix the angel food cake with a can of crushed pineapple...a great Weight Watchers treat. We have only used a 9x13...wondering about the bundt cake idea!
did not work, fell before I took it from the oven, very disappointed, don't have time to make another one so will have to take it
I made your Tropical Angel food cake
It was a flop in the angel food cake box there were 2 bags one said cake mix one said egg mix , I put the 2 bags together with crushed pineapple and mixed them poured it into a 9x13 pan baked it for 30 min. it turned out spongy 7 sticky , it was awful had to throw it out , Husband would not t eat it . and he eats just about everything
HELP WHAT DID I DO WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi June, I use the Angel Food Cake mix that only has 1 bag in it. I have heard that the mix with the 2 bags does not turn out well.
How come you dont use and actual angel food cake tube pan instead of the 9x13
I went with the 9X13 pan because that is what I had readily available
Hi, I made this cake and put a little lite cool whip on it and it is great. My only problem is the cake seems to fall in the center. I tried the pineapple cake too and it did the same. Do you have any suggestions?
Hi, What size pan were you using? I used a 9X13 pan when I made the cake and did not have it fall in the middle.
It is a 9 X 13 metal pan. It looks beautiful till I take it out of the oven. Maybe I'll try cooking it a little longer.
Let me know if that works better. I am not sure why it would fall in the middle.
It did not work. I cooked it an extra 10-12 minutes and it still fell. Tastes fine, but looks pretty bad. Not sure what else to do.
Drain the oranges?
I used a bundt pan ( sprayed with Pam) and it turned out beautifully!
I made this w/ a 20oz can of pineapple. Very good.
I suggest mixing in the baking dish as described. It overflowed my bowl as well (lol)
30 mins @ 350 was spot on. I rotated my dish @ 15 mins due to bad oven, but @ 30 is was perfect.
So glad you enjoyed the cake!
Would I be able to substitute canned peaches or fruit cocktail in light syrup?
Hi, I have never tried canned peaches or fruit cocktail but it would def be worth trying.
Do you "prepare" the cake pan? (SHortening and flour?)
I did not prepare the cake pan with shortening and flour. I sprayed it lightly with Pam but that was it.
Do you mix the cake per directions on box or do we just use cake mix and add oranges? Love to make.
Hi, Just the cake and the oranges. No need to add anything else.
I'm just an old country boy and I'm confused do you or do you not make the cake mix according to the box and then put in the fruit and its juices?
Do you drain the fruit or mix fruit and juice with cake mix?
Hi, You mix everything into the cake mix. Fruit and juice
Let us know if you make it and what you think. We loved it.
