old handwritten recipe from viola killion she baked 1 hour in 9x 13 pan and had more nutsbut otherwise same recipe
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!
***MADE FOR PAC FALL 2011*** Very good cake. I ended up baking the cake longer than time stated. But, all in all a good recipe. I made it to serve to my guests tonight for halloween. They all liked it. Thanks for posting this nice little recipe.
