Marinated Oranges Recipe

"This flavorful fruit was actually the topping in a cake recipe. But I didn't want all the calories or fat from the cake—and the oranges are a good dessert all by themselves!" reports Norridge, Illinois' Carol Poindexter. "The dash of vanilla extract brings out the fruit's sweetness."
