Fruit Cocktail Cake with Sweet, Buttery Sauce

What makes this Fruit Cocktail Cake the greatest is that it is served with a wonderful butter sauce. Also, it is so simple to make. I know when you try it you will agree. (Double all ingredients to bake in an 11x13-inch pan.)

I was so excited to not only discover this website, but this recipe. My (ex) Stepmother used to make this when I was a kid, and I would truly sit down and eat half in one sitting. I have craved this cake for the past 20 years and guess what......It's only been out of the oven for half an hour and I'm already on my 3rd piece. It's quick, easy and delicious. The best part is the bitter old ex Stpemother has always refused to give me the recipe as it was a "family recipe".....Whatever....Heres to you Rayetta...Nah, nah,nah nah!, nah!

I baked this cake twice, using the exact same recipe and both times, the cake didn't turn out well. The batter is too little for a 9 inch square pan and the cake didn't rise. What happened and is the cake supposed to be a pudding?

Wow! What a hit! Quick, easy, and delicious. My tips; 1) Do NOT use your Kitchen-Aid mixer (is doesn't chop up the fruit at all; 2) Add a few tablespoons of vegetable oil to the batter & mix well (ensures moisture); 3) Reduce the sauce recipe by half. This cake is going to be my Thanksgiving contribution this year.
