Fruit Cocktail Cake with Buttery Coconut Icing & Walnuts

Yesterday evening I experienced the best surprise in my life…My hubby gave me a gift which I have dreamt of..Want to know the gift, wait till tomorrow..Now back to the recipe..I had some leftover fruit cocktail after my trifle recipe..I wanted to try a cake with that, I know it will taste great in a cake so decided to go for it. I made a simple cake and topped it with a buttery coconut sauce..Actually the cake doesn't have any fat in it so that icing is rich and buttery which really makes it.


All Purpose Flour / Maida - 1 cup / 120 gms
Sugar - 3/4 cup / 150 gms
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Baking Soda - 1/2 tsp
Fruit Cocktail - 1 cup chopped finely / 150 gms
Fruit Cocktail syrup - 1/2 cup / 120 ml / 4 fluid ounces
Egg - 1
Vanilla - 1 tsp

For Coconut Butter Sauce:
Sugar - 1/2 cup / 100 gms
Milk - 1/2 cup / 120 ml / 4 fluid ounces
Butter - 5 tblspn
Desicated Coconut - 1/2 cup / 75 gms
Walnuts - 5 tblspn chopped


Preheat the oven to 170 Degree C / 340 Degree F.

Take flour , baking powder and baking soda in a bowl. Mix well and set aside.

Now take egg, sugar and vanilla in a mixer and beat till fluffy.

Add in the fruit cocktail juice and beat again.

Now add in the flour mixture and combine well.

Add the fruit cocktail pieces and fold well.

Pour this in a buttered dish and bake it for 45 mins.

Remove from the oven and keep aside.

Now make the icing. Take sugar and milk in a sauce pan and heat it up.

Add butter and mix well. Keep mixing till it gets thick and creamy.
