Great visit this morning from friend Lori from Aberdeen, and local friends Steph and Sarah...weren't the kids great?. Here is the recipe for that Fruit Cocktail cake:

Fruit Cocktail Cake

1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
14 oz can fruit cocktail, undrained
OR crushed pineapple OR peaches, chopped

Gooey Topping:
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup cream OR evaporated milk
1/2 cup butter OR margarine
1 tsp vanilla

1. In a large bowl, mix together all of the cake ingredients, including the fruit liquid. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 (23 x 33 cm) pan.
2. Bake at 350 F (180 C) for 30-40 min, or until the top springs back when touched lightly in the middle.
3. While the cake is baking, prepare the topping. In a small saucepan, bring the sugar, cream and butter to a boil. Simmer for about a minute, remove from heat and add the vanilla.
4. Pour the hot topping over the cake when you remove it from the oven. The sauce soaks into the cake, making a simple cake taste delectable.

Serves 12-15
