Aunt Bev's Fruit Cocktail Cake

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by DebS 2

This is my favorite cake - it's so simple and moist. I serve it warm with ice cream or whipped topping. My Aunt Bev gave me this recipe along with other recipes for my wedding shower that she gave me over 30 years ago! It's still a favorite!

Top Review by Chef Treenie

I was'nt really comfortable using so much sugar, but thought the huge amount of salt was meant to balance it all out. Didn't turn out that way for me. The cake was spongy and the fruit mushy and it had a sweet/salty taste overall. I was very disappointed.
