Fruit Cocktail Cake was one of the first baked items I remember making in Food Services back in high school. I thought it was the best cake I ever ate; all that fruit and brown sugar and nut topping. I was fourteen at the time, and hadn’t had much else but Mom’s homemade cakes and occasionally a TastyKake from the store.
So I took the recipe home and made it for Mom and she loved it!
Going through her things I found a copy of it in her handwritten cookbook. That says something about the recipe.
I always thought it was a unique recipe until a few years ago when everyone where I work, (ages 75 to 22) had tasted it at one time or another. So how do I improve on a beloved favorite? How about using Monk Fruit In The Raw?
I replaced half the granulated sugar with Monk Fruit In The Raw. The taste was spot on. Not too sweet. The texture came out perfect, moist and tender. The cake easily held the fruit together without getting soggy or crumbling. I used fruit cocktail in pear juice to reduce the calories.

  1. Love the back story to this recipe and I know fruit cake sometimes gets a bad rap but your version sure looks delish.
