Jeanne's Story

Here is another favorite recipe from A Women's Paradise of recipes by the Associated Women For Pepperdine College cookbook that was published in 1962. Please note that this is not the same as a Fruit Cocktail Cake. The center is soft while the top is chewy and it is best served warm with Vanilla Ice Cream or Whipped Cream. My tweak was to add the melted butter to the topping because I found that it adds to the chewiness of this wonderful down home dessert!

Ingredients

1 c
sugar
1 c
flour
1 tsp
soda
1 large
egg
1 can(s)
fruit cocktail, juice and all
3/4 c

7

8
Sprinkle brown sugar and nuts evenly on batter and pat down lightly. Drizzle melted butter over topping.
9
Bake for 40-50 minutes until golden brown.

And looks like this!
11
Spoon out in bowls and serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.

Yes Ellen. Just warm it in the microwave because you'll want to eat it warm with ice cream...at least that's my preference! Enjoy!!

Jeanne, after it's been served do you store leftovers in the fridge?
