Recipe by Bowtie
READY IN: 47mins
SERVES: 8-10


  • 2
    (15 ounce) cans fruit cocktail (I use Del Monte Carb Clever to cut down on some of the sugar)
  • 1
    (18 ounce) box yellow cake mix
  • 12
    cup unsalted butter, melted


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Melt one stick of butter in a microwave safe dish for 1 minute 40 seconds on 50% power.
  • Pour entire contents of fruit cocktail cans (juice and all) into a 8 X 11 glass pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Spread fruit cocktail evenly on bottom of pan.
  • Sprinkle box of yellow cake mix, evenly, over top of fruit cocktail. Do NOT mix cake mix and fruit cocktail. Use the back of a spoon to smooth out cake mix.
  • Drizzle melted butter over top of cake mix. (Cake mix does not need to be completely covered in butter).
  • (Optional - sprinkle a small amount coconut on top of the cake before baking, photo shows it with coconut).
  • Bake on 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
