Having a good cake recipe is essential for an enjoyable party or get-together. My mom is known for her cakes, so I asked her to share one of her favorite quick recipes that gets rave reviews. She said this recipe is her favorite, hands down. It is quick to make and she always gets tons of compliments.

Fruit Cocktail Cake

My mom sent this over with the recipe...This is the cake I make for funerals and showers. The funeral director says it's the best cake he's ever eaten! And he's eaten a lot of cake! ~ Love Mom

For the cake:
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
17 oz. can fruit cocktail, un-drained
3 eggs

For the topping:
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 canned milk
1 stick butter
1-1/2 cup coconut
1 cup chopped pecans

Beat first 3 ingredients until fruit is in smaller pieces. Bake in a greased and floured cooking sheet at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Topping: Bring first 3 ingredients to boil. Remove from heat and add coconut and nuts. Mix well and spoon over hot cake.

I also share some of my favorite "knock your sock off" recipes in our baby shower desserts section.

If you are looking for something a little more "bite sized" and portable, cupcakes are a great alternative to serve. Check out our best baby shower cupcakes section to get our best cupcake recipes.
