This recipe has been in my family for years. No matter where I've made it everyone wants the recipe. I love it because it looks so finished straight from the oven. No need to cool and frost.

WHAT A WONDERFUL TASTING CAKE THIS IS, & although I gifted half of it to a neighbor couple, another time I'd really enjoy making it to consume right here at home! I've always been a big fan of fruit cocktail so this one was a no-brainer! ABSOLUTELY GREAT, & thanks, much, for posting the recipe!
