Not sure where it originated and some on here close - but no cigar to this! While I'm told it is good cold, it never lasted long enough to find out...I'm sure you'll have the same issue. It's one-bowl, quick and easy!

This cake received mixed reviews from my family- they either loved it or not. 5 stars from my husband who enjoyed this cake very much and for simplicity of cooking too. I used a can of Golden Circle fruit salad for this cake, but otherwise made as written. Took a little longer than stated to cook. Enjoyed both warm with ice-cream and cold the next day.

Boy this is a great old-fashioned cake recipe! I used fruit cocktail in juice (rather than heavy syrup) otherwise made as directed. This cake is dense and moist and the topping is just terrific too. I thought this was great as is; I'm sure it would be yummy warm with ice cream or whipped cream too. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
