Fruit Cocktail Cake

For sometime now I have been itching to make vintage cakes that I have been reading about. There is something rustic and no hassle feel about them that I am very fond of.

Here is how it came out.

You shall need:

For the cake- [Feeds upto 12-14]

2 cups… Cake Flour [For each cup of All purpose flour, remove 2 tbsp and replace it with cornflour. Here you shall remove 4 tbsp of AP Flour and add 4 tbsp of cornstarch. Sift it twice atleast before use]

1.5 cup… White sugar [grain]

1 tsp… Baking soda

1.5 tsp.. baking Powder

A pinch of salt

A small Fruit cocktail tin with the liquid

  • Sift the flour, baking powder, soda and salt.
  • Add sugar to it. Mix well.
  • Mix the Egg and milk.
  • Pour it in the dry ingredients.
  • Add the fruit cocktail with its liquid.
  • Add a few more tbsp of milk if you feel batter is very thick. [We need cake to be of pouring consistency]
  • Pout in a lined tin and bake in a pre heated oven at 180C for 45 min or until the skewer comes out clean. [I used a 26″ springform]
  • Once it is done, let it rest in the oven itself.

For the Sauce:

You shall need-

1/2 cup … Almonds [Finely crushed]

1/2 cup…. Brown sugar

1/4 cup.. Butter

1/2 cup… Milk


  • Heat milk and butter in a pan.
  • Turn off the heat and add the sugar and almonds.
  • Prick the cake at several places with the fork and spread this sauce evenly. [Make sure the cake is still warm when you do this]
  • Place it in the oven or at a warm place.
  • Serve with cream or ice cream
