This is a great winter cake when there isn't very much fresh fruit in season, it is also great any other time of the year. This cake has a wonderful buttery taste that will have you reaching for another piece.

Definitely A GREAT CAKE! I've always enjoyed fruit cocktail, whether plain, over ice cream or topping pound cake, & this recipe is a great addition to all of that! Really enjoyed the addition of the icing, even though the cake is very moist by itself! Many thanks for posting it! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
