This Week's Recipe

Since I'll be out of town, I thought I better get my recipe up now. This week I'm going to do a dessert. A Yummy Dessert. A very quick, very easy, very yummy dessert.

Fruit Cocktail Cake


1 cup flour (all purpose)
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 can (16oz) Fruit Cocktail - DRAINED
1 egg

Topping: 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I like pecans)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Combine all the ingrediants together - EXCEPT FOR THE BROWN SUGAR AND chopped nuts. It will seem dry - you'll notice you add NO LIQUID. Don't worry, it's so moist you won't believe it. Trust me.
Pour into a 9x9 ungreased baking pan. Smooth out top. Sprinkle brown sugar and chopped nuts over top.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 mins.

I serve with Kool-Whip.

Often times I will double the recipe and use a 9 x 13 glass baking pan.

"Serve with Cool Whip"? Wouldn't it be better with Reddi-Whip? ;^)
