Cocktail Hour

While hanging out with my fabulous in-laws ... Ann made a "Cocktail Cake". No No ... nothing that exciting ... a FRUIT cocktail cake. It was quite tasty -- and I didn't want to forget it. Here is the fruit cocktail recipe:

2 cups fruit cocktail (or any other fruit ... juice and all)
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

Topping:
Brown Sugar & Nuts (walnuts) -- sprinkled

Bake in a 9x9 @ 325 for 45 minutes. Assemble as if it were a peach cobbler -- fruit on the bottom, layer the cake batter -- top with ... toppings!

It was so good ... it made me look like this:
