Mrs. Steventon's Cake. . .

Impressive title, eh???

Mrs. Steventon, Tina, 
is a former co~worker of mine and an  a m a z i n g  cook!

Not only did Tina share her jolly good sense of humor
and control over large groups of students during lunch duty (250+)
she also, shared her love of family and homemaking! 

This recipe has many of the food items I  l o v e,
plus, it's another one of those refrigerator cakes,
similar to my own Strawberry Yogurt Cake (here).

Mrs. Steventon's Cake

1 Box Yellow Cake Mix
1 Small can Mandarin Oranges, drained

Follow cake directions on the box.
Beat on low speed to combine water, oil and eggs.
Scrape the bowl and add the drained Mandarin Oranges.
Increase speed to medium~high for the remaining time.
This will cut~up and evenly distribute pieces of the Mandarin Oranges.

Pour into a prepared pan and bake according to directions on the box.
Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack.
Cool cake completely before frosting.

1 large tub Cool Whip  
1 large box (French) Vanilla Instant Pudding
I small can Crushed Pineapple, undrained
1 cup chopped Pecans

Mix the (French) Vanilla Pudding 
and the Crushed Pineapple until well blended.

Gently fold in the Cool Whip.
Frost the cooled cake completely.

Add chopped Pecans over the frosting.

Place into the refrigerator until serving time.

Chilled and refreshing,
impressive, indeed!!!

Thank you Mrs. (Tina) Steventon,
not only for this amazing cake recipe,
but for all the years of knowing and working along beside you.

Until next time. . .

looks like a wonderful cake, but the story of Mrs. Steventon was so sweet. I have fond memories of our cafeteria head cook from elementary school, Mrs. Beasley. That was back when kids got real whole food for lunch and ours was the best!
