Mandarin Orange Cake

This is an old family favorite recipe -- you don't really taste the mandarin oranges, but they give it an amazing sweetness. And it's definitely not the prettiest cake in the world, but once you try it, you won't want anything else!

1 cup flour 1 cup sugar 1 egg 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 teaspoon baking soda ¼ teaspoon salt 1 can (11 oz.) mandarin oranges (drained) 3 tbs oleo 3 tbs milk 1 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
