Well you didn't know I died, went to heaven, and came back to share this recipe with you...did you? ANYHOW....many months later, unable to get the recipe out of my mind, and asked after the recipe and the owner Ada Mae personally came out, with her recipes in tow and shared it with me! If you every get a chance to visit this lovely community, stop by. You won't regret it!
1 1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. soda
1 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
Mix dry ingredients. Beat in one egg, add 2c. Fruit Cocktail(this is the mystery ingredient wink...wink) and mix well. Put into greased 13 x 9 pan. Top with 1/2 c. brown sugar and 1/2 cup nuts (I use pecans or walnuts). Sprinkle on top of cake and bake at 325 degrees for 40-50 minutes.

Mix all ingredients on stove top and bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes until nice and golden. Serve over cake.
