Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This looks and sounds pretty darn tasty, pardner. Guess I'm gonna have to whip myself up a batch before I head on down the trail.

I'm not a fan of tornadoes but I AM a fan of cake, so I guess it's time to make this right about...now.

My Mother made this many years ago and we called it Fruitcocktail cake Thanks for the recipe

50 minutes for a serving size for 15 people seems like a lot however I enjoyed eating this.

no but id like to

For years we used to eat "canned fruits" and not frozen. As a result of that, I can't stand canned fruit cocktail. Is there any other fruits that can be used? Thank you for your assistance.

The juice and syrup help keep this cake moist. I recommend trying the fruit cocktail since it's going into a cake and you're not eating it by itself. If you'd rather not do that, you could substitute fresh fruit and a little fruit juice. We haven't tried this ourselves, so keep in mind that we don't know exactly how it will turn out. Let us know what you end up doing!

I have made this recipe for years, the first time I made it I didn't like biting into the big chunks of fruit, so from then on I coarsely pureed the fruit (or you could just cut all of the pieces up real small) and added it to the cake mix that way. Everybody loves the cake when I make it, and you don't have to deal with all those big chunks of fruit!

My grandmother was making a cake that was almost identical in the 40's. I'd say the recipe in one form or the other has been around for a long, long time. Who know the originator after all these years. Just make it. It is delish...

Thank you for your message. This is a blogger adaptation of a recipe. It is possible that the recipes are very similar.

I can't get the recipe to come up to give amounts. Help.

THESE ARE FRUIT PUNCH BARS !!!!! They are in a Pilsbury cookbook from the 60s,, I still have it same recipe.. It's been stolen out of that book.. Te credit for this recipe goes to Mrs Blaine F. Jaeger of West Chester, Pennsylvania !!!!! Please revise the name of the Bars to what they should be !!!! Thank You Mrs Claudette Ashman
