If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Fruit Cocktail Cake (untested)

This recipe isn't written in Grammy's handwriting. The name "Alberto" is in the upper right corner of the card. Grammy's handwriting appears on the upper left corner of the card with the date and attribution "FRDH 4-74".

Ingredients for cake:
  • 1 can fruit cocktail (303 size)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cube oleo [I would use butter]
Ingredients for icing:
  • 1/2 cube oleo [I would use butter]
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup canned milk [I would assume this means sweetened condensed milk instead of evaporated]
  • 1 cup coconut
Mixing instructions are missing on this recipe. Baking temp and time are 350°F for about 30 or 40 minutes or until brown. Icing should be poured on warm cake.
