This is a quick, easy cake. My mom used to make it for our lunchboxes.
Fruit Cocktail Cake V
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup margarine, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 (15.25 ounce) can fruit cocktail, including syrup
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×13 inch pan. Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
2 In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Beat in the flour mixture, then stir in the fruit cocktail and syrup, mixing just until combined. Stir in the walnuts and chocolate chips.
3 Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.
