About this recipe: Now you can put those tins of fruit cocktail that you have in the cupboard to good use! This is an easy emergency cake with a coconut topping and a sweet icing.
This cake was super moist and yummy! I'll be making this again! Great for a potluck! - 17 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I thought this was very good and pretty easy . . .but I didn't do the last frosting topping; it just seemed sweet enough already. Hubs agreed with me and does seem to like the cake. I had to bake longer; about 15 minutes longer, but ended up with a nice coffee type cake that has good flavors, fruit, and plenty of sweetness. I agree; this would be a good cake to take to a potluck. thanks for the recipe! - 22 Sep 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My 10 year old daughter made this for a potluck dinner at church. Everyone loved it! It was very easy for her to make the cake. I made the boiled icing to go on top. This topping tastes like german chocolate cake icing without the nuts. The cake is very moist, and freezes well. We didn't change a thing. - 17 Nov 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
