Really stupid question...is it 2 15oz cans or 2 cans equaling 15oz? Do you fold all of them into the batter, or do you reserve some for topping? Thank you!

Hi Denise

It's two ( 15 oz.) cans of oranges. You will use these inside the batter. If you would like to garnish with more, feel free to add more as a topping!

Thanks so much
