1 1/2 cups
packed brown sugar
I baked this cake years ago. It is simply delicious!
It's great for a crowd. Here is how to make the icing:
1 stick of butter
3/4 cups sugar(regular)
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 cup flaked coconut
Boil sugar, butter and milk for 2 minutes. Add coconut. Spread icing on cake while icing and cake are hot. Enjoy!
Do not add too much of the liquid from the fruit cocktail - will make the cake too moist to cook thoroughly
This cake is fabulous! I made it as directed, including the butter glaze another reviewer mentioned (with the exception of the coconut, as I didn't have any on hand). My kids had 3 pieces each (normal limit is one, but this cake was so good, none of us could stop eating it), and my 5yo DD exclaimed, "This is the best cake I ever tasted!"
This cake doesn't disappoint - plus, it's very easy. Definitely 5 stars!
This cake is great. I had the recipe and lost it while relocating to another state. There was a butter sauce with coconut that is poured over this cake and it makes it heavenly. Wish you had posted the sauce recipe as it makes the cake. The fruit cocktail should be totally drained in the recipe I had. Thank you for posting this. I'll watch to see if anyone else has the butter sauce recipe to pour over it. Thanks!!!
My daughters made this for my birthday...and I must say, it was one of the BEST cakes (moist!) I have EVER eaten!
It is so unusual and soooo gooood! You'll have absolute raves with this one!
This is definitely easy, but I didn't think it had much of a taste. Perhaps it was the fruit cocktail that I used? I guess go for a good brand or cut up your own tasty fruit. Pineapple and peaches tasted good.
it's really a favorite cake for my dauther. but she like curhed pineapple and shredded coconut
This recipe is wonderful! My family loved it. I didn't last two days.
