I’m going to be honest, I stole this recipe from one of my roles models in life, the fabulous Ms Dolly Parton.
One rainy afternoon while I was firmly wedged on the sofa watching Steel Magnolias, Dolly Parton’s character calls out this recipe to a friend. When I had recovered from having a little cry at the film, I decided to go shopping and see if this recipe would work, and it did. I think it’s more of pudding than a cake, but you’ll enjoy it none the less.
Dolly’s recommendation is to serve this with ice cream (to cut the sweetness), and it does go extremely well. So have a go at this recipe, put on Steel Magnolias and treat yourself to some cuppa cuppa cuppa cake.
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup tinned fruit cocktail in syrup
Preheat your oven to 180 Celsius
Combine all the ingredients, mix well, and transfer to a greased cake tin.
Bake for 30 – 40 mins, or until golden and crunchy on top.
