Pig Pickin' Cake TNT

Another of our favorites.

Pig Pickin' Cake

11-ounce can mandarin oranges with juice
4 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
9-ounce carton frozen whipped topping, thawed
8-ounce can crushed pineapple, with juice
3.4-ounce box instant vanilla pudding

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour three 9-inch cake pans. In mixing bowl, combine cake mix, mandarin oranges, mandarin orange juice, eggs and oil. Beat for 2 minutes with electric mixer. Pour into pans and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. Cool in pans for 5 minutes, turn out of pans and finish cooling on wire racks.

OK, forgive my ignorance, but what does the name of the cake have to do with the actual cake?

This cake is traditionally served at North Carolina barbeques. It is a light tasting dessert. For best results, make ahead and keep in the fridge for a day or two before serving. It's very quick and simple to make!

Of course you would have to understand what a pig pickin' is.
