How to Make Texas Tornado Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large bowl, cream sugar and eggs together until fluffy.
  • 2Mix in the fruit cocktail.
  • 3In a separate bowl sift together flour and baking soda.
  • 4Add the dry ingredients to the fruit cocktail mixture.
  • 5Pour into a lightly greased & floured 13" X 9" cake pan. (I prefer using parchment paper in my pans.)Sprinkle brown sugar and nuts onto the surface of the batter. Put into a preheated 325F degree oven and cook for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
  • 6After about 30 minutes start the topping. Gently boil the butter, milk and sugar for 2 minutes then add the coconut. The cake should now be ready.
