Granny's Pea Pickin'

I made my Granny's Pea Pickin' cake last night and finally got a taste today when I got home. I must say Granny's was the best but i'm running a close second:-) I miss my Granny and her cookin' so much and wish I would have learned alot more form her while I had the chance. I will always have the memories and luckily the recipes;-) Thank You Granny....

For those of you who want the recipe for yourself here it is:

4 eggs
1/2 cup Crisco oil
1- 11oz. can of mandarin oranges (I couldn't find an 11oz. can so I used 15)
1- Box of Duncan Hines yellow cake mix
1- Lg. Cool Whip
1- #2 can of crushed pineapple in heavy syrup (I asked my mom what #2 was and it's the regular size, they used to call them #2 cans:-)
1- Lg. box of instant vanilla pudding

Beat eggs well. Add oil, mandarin oranges (with juice), and cake mix. Blend well; beat 2 mins. at high speed with hand mixer. Grease and lightly flour 3 round 8 1/2 or 9 1/2 layer pans. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown. Cool all layers before spreading filling.

Use large bowl. Dump pineapple with juice in bowl. Add pudding mix and blend well. Add cool whip and beat by hand until fluffy. Spread on cooled layers, top and sides. Put in cake holder and cover. Refrigerate overnight....

This is the whole recipe and copied exactly from the paper, hope you guys like it!
