How to Make Grandma W's Tutti Fruiti Pudding Cake


  1. Drain fruit cocktail, reserve 1/2 cup liquid. Combine flour, sugar, soda and salt. Beat egg until thick and lemon colored in medium bowl. Add drained fruit cocktail and 1/2 c reserved liquid. Stir in flour mixture. Turn into greased and floured 8 inch square cake pan. Combine pecans and brown sugar, mix well and sprinkle over top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean. Serve warm or cold with whipped cream, if desired.
  2. I remember Grandma combined the cool whip with pudding to make frosting. She used vanilla pudding, prepared, with the cool whip. That's why she called it pudding cake.
