Day Thirty: Fruit Cocktail Cake

I love this recipe.  It is easy and super moist and delicious.  When I did Box Lunch Deliveries at the beginning of my decor business to make from job to job, this was a recipe that I used and my clients loved.  Hope you will try it and enjoy it also.

Fruit Cocktail Cake
Quick, Easy, few ingredients

2 eggs, slightly beaten
Add juice from the fruit (#303 can)  16 - 17 oz.

1 1/2 cups of sugar
2 cups flour
2 t. soda
1/4 t. salt
1 t. vanilla

Add fruit and 1 can coconut.  Pour into oblong pan.  Sprinkle 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 1/2 cups nuts.  (I did not use the nuts as many do not like nuts)

Bake 375 degrees about 35 minutes.

10 minutes before cake is done:

Boil for 10 minutes:
1 small can of evaporated milk
1 stick oleo
1 cup sugar
Pour over cake while still warm.  You may add coconut and nuts on top if desired.
