I like to bake. I love pound cake. But, I know that the family deserves a bit of variety, so I have been experimenting with new recipes. I found this one that has no butter or oil in it. It is super-easy and it turned out great!
Fruit Cocktail Cake
1-1/2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 cups fruit cocktail, including juice (it's called fruit salad here)
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, if desired
Mix all ingredients, except nuts, well.
Pour into ungreased pan.
Sprinkle nuts on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40-60 minutes, depending on oven.
I doubled the recipe for an 9 x 13 inch pan.
I frosted this cake with my own cream cheese icing concoction.
8 ounces cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla icing
1 teaspoon orange flavoring
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
2 cups powdered sugar (or enough to make icing spreadable)
Mix together, ice cake. Enjoy!
