Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

30 Min

Ingredients

2 c
self rising flour
1 can(s)
(15 oz) fruit cocktail in heavy syrup, undrained
2 large
eggs
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 1/2 c
sugar

FOR THE SAUCE:

1 stick
butter, unsalted
1 c
sweetened coconut flakes
1 c
sugar
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 c
evaporated milk
1 c
chopped pecans

Directions Step-By-Step

1
preheat oven to 350.
2
spray a 9x13 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray (i like the kind that has flour in it).
3
in a medium bowl, mix together all the cake ingredients at low speed using a stand or handheld electric mixer until thoroughly combined.
4
if you want to keep your fruit cocktail chunky in the batter, then add it in last after mixing all the other ingredients.
5
pour cake into baking pan.
6
bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes (oven time very so check after 30 minutes).
7
when done, cake should spring back to the touch and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. using a fork, poke a few holes in the cake. now make the sauce.
8
combine all the sauce ingredients in a medium saucepan. note: i don't like my chopped pecans to be to big on top of the cake so sometimes i will crush them down to slightly smaller pieces.
9
turn the heat up and bring it all to a boil for 1 minute.
10
make sure you spread out the coconut and pecans evenly over the cake.
11
now dig in. i especially love to eat this cake while it is still warm. but it is good at room temperature to.
