Old Fashioned Fruit Cocktail Cake

A cake right out of my grandma's recipe box.



  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsps. baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 15.25 oz cans fruit cocktail with juice/syrup


  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts


1. Combine the ingredients together in a large bowl.

2. Mix by hand if you want the fruit pieces to stay whole in the cake, use a mixer if you want them mashed up in the cake.

3. Pour the batter into a greased 9×13 pan.

4. Sprinkle topping (brown sugar and nuts) over top of batter in pan.

5. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

NOTE: You can cut this recipe in half and bake for 30 minutes in a 9 x 13 pan for a thinner cake.
