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!
