Texas Tornado Cake
Texas Tornado Cake 1 1/2 cups sugar 2 eggs 2 cups (approx 1 can) fruit cocktail, undrained 2 tsp baking soda 2 cups flour 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans) Frosting 1/2 cup butter 3/4 cup sugar 1/2 cup evaporated milk 1 cup coconut Combine sugar, eggs, fruit cocktail, baking soda and flour. Mix well. The batter will be thick. Spread the batter in the bottom of a prepared 9x13 baking dish/pan. Sprinkle top with brown sugar and nuts. Bake at 325 for 40 minutes. When the cake comes out of the oven, combine the frosting ingredients (except for coconut) in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in coconut. Spread over top of the cake immediately.
