While reading www.thepioneerwoman.com last night I came across this recipe. Ree Drummond wrote she always wanted to make Truvy’s(played by Dolly Parton) Cuppa, Cuppa, Cuppa cake from The Steel Magnolias, so I decided I needed to follow in Ree’s footsteps!
Well, not only do I love the movie, I LOVE this cake! It is so easy to make and is really is like Truvy say: “Oh hell, Clairee, you don’t need a recipe. It’s just a cuppa of flour, a cuppa of sugar and a cuppa of fruit cocktail WITH the syrup, stir and bake in a hot oven ‘til golden brown and bubbly. I serve it with ice cream to cut the sweetness.”!
You can also serve it with whipped cream or put it in a bowl and pour iced cold milk over top!
1 cup of self rising flour
1 cup sugar
1 can fruit cocktail with juice
In a large bowl mix all ingredients until moist. Pour into a butter greased 8 inch square pan. Bake in a 350 degree until for about 45 minutes or until golden brown.
