     With trying to change our diet to healthy clean eating we still craved an after dinner sweet or two.  I tinkered around in the kitchen and was able to come up with a few that were simple and would take that edge off.  The idea for this cake came from a few lone ingredients let in the fridge that needed to be used and some club soda left from the holiday drinks.  The results were yummy!

     Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Measure out the cake mix and add to a mixing bowl.  Zest the tangerine into the bowl then cut in half and squeeze the juice into the bowl also.  Measure 1/2 cup crushed pineapple and incorporate all until mixed well.  Add the club soda and mix well.  Pour into an 8x8 greased pan and bake 30 minutes.

     Warm the cream cheese in the microwave for 15 seconds.  Add the pineapple with juice and mix well, then stir in the powdered sugar until mixed well.  Frost cake when completely cooled.
