I found this recipe over at Angela's blog. I originally found her when I was researching a wood cookstove and she had just bought one. She's living my dream!!! Totally off grid....love it!
Anyway, this is super simple (for you Janice) and everyone will have all of the ingredients in stock. That's important to me.
FRUIT COCKTAIL CAKE
Grease a 9x13 pan and preheat the oven to 350
2 cups of flour
2 cups of sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 - 16 oz can fruit cocktail undrained
Combine all the ingredients using an electric mixer (or by hand if you're off grid) for 1 -2 minutes. Pour into pan.
Sprinkle top with:
4 - 6 Tbsp brown sugar (oh you know I used 6)
1 cup chopped walnuts
Bake 45 minutes. Cool completely. Top with whipped cream.
This is soooooooo good! It was even better this morning at breakfast! I think I need a sweets intervention! lol
