This is a quick, easy cake. My mom used to make it for our lunchboxes.

Very delicious cake and so easy to make. I did cut down the chocolate chips and walnuts to 1/2 cup each and that covered the cake nicely. To save time a cake mix can be used with the same great results. Thank you Sharon for the posting.

If you like fruit and chocolate combined, it's a very good recipe. It is very tasty. I've had alot of mixed reviews. Some people just don't like the taste. But I did, so it got 5 stars. The first time I made it I could find the sifter, so I improvised, but it turned out very dry. I thought maybe it was also because it just didn't get quite enough liquid. So the next time I made it, I used a sifter and added an extra egg to it. Turned out great. Both times I made it I did add extra cinnamon also.

I used to make this cake when my kids were little over 30 years ago and lost the recipe. It is wonderful! I added an additional 8 ounce can of fruit cocktail, drained, in addition to the 15 ounce tropical fruit cocktail. I served it to my dinner guests and they loved it....they were surprised and delighted with the chocolate chips.
