“This is also called Fruit Cocktail Cake. It originally called for 2 cups of sugar, but I found it too sweet and cut it to 1 cup.”

This cake was great, I did a few things different. I put the fruit cocktail in the food processor first to make the chunks smaller. I omitted the coconut and poked holes in the cake before I poured on the sauce. Then put it in the fridge to cool and then topped it with cool whip. A tip I have is to cook the sauce up to a rolling boil for one minute. I received alot of compliments on this cake

This cake is awesome! I found it while looking for a cake that starts with "U" (don't ask), and was pretty skeptical. Now it is in our permanent recipe box. My husband even asked for it for his birthday. I used "No sugar added" fruit cocktail. The icing never did get thick, but it soaked into the cake and made it deliciously moist. This is a must try!

This is my new Favorite cake!! i made it in a bundt pan,& it was not "ugly" at all! i used a can of lite cherry pie filling & a can (drained) of pinappple tidbits in place of fruit cup (used what i had) and had coconut extract,which i added to the icing. Poked holes in the top, poured icing over top & spooned some of the coconut on top. Delicious!
