Mandarin Orange Cake




  • 2 eggs
  • 2 (11 ounce) cans mandarin oranges, well drained
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine

  2. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 to 40 minutes. Cake will get quite dark.

  4. Remove cake from oven. Pour topping over.
  5. Return cake to oven and bake 5 minutes longer.
  6. Combine Topping ingredients and bring to a rolling boil.
