      I love this cake because it’s a simple recipe, basically, no fail. Mix up the five-ingredient batter, dump it into the prepared pan, put the brown sugar and nuts over that, and bake at 325 F for 40 minutes.

      Once it’s done baking and still hot, spread on the icing, that is seriously all there is to it!

      Texas Tornado Cake

      1 ½ cups sugar
      2 eggs
      2 cups UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour
      1 cup chopped nuts
      2 cups fruit cocktail with syrup (16-oz. can)
      2 tsp. baking soda
      ¼ cup brown sugar

      For the icing:
      1 stick butter, preferably REAL butter
      1 cup coconut
      ¾ cup brown sugar
      ½ cup evaporated milk or half-and-half

      Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a 9×13 pan.
      Mix all ingredients, except brown sugar and nuts, in a bowl.
      Pour batter into the pan.
      Combine brown sugar and nuts; sprinkle over batter.
      Bake for 40 minutes.
      Spread icing on cake while hot.

      boiled coconut icing:
      combine icing ingredients in saucepan and boil for 2 minutes.
      Spoon over cake while hot.
      Let cool; cut into squares.
