In a food processor, finely chop the bread and place in a large bowl. Mix with the other ingredients including the fruit cocktail with its syrup. Stir well to be sure to dissolve the sugar. Place the mixture in a caramel covered mold (*).
2Cook in oven at 375 degrees F for 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry. Let cool before serving. Cut in small pieces.
3(*) To line the mold with caramel:
1/2 cup sugar
a few drops (scant) water
Place mold on burner and dissolve sugar until it turns a nice light brown color. Rotate the mold to coat all sides and bottom with the caramel.
