Texas Tornado Cake

There’s a tornado warning in the area. :O

Too bad I can’t make this cake to pass the time…seems appropriate, right?


Looks perfect with that coconut!

1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs

1 cup chopped walnuts

Butter Sauce Icing
1 stick of butter
3/4 cups white sugar
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 cup flaked coconut

2. Mix together sugar, eggs, fruit cocktail, soda, and flour. Pour batter into prepared pan.

3. Mix the brown sugar and nuts together, and sprinkle mixture onto the batter.

4. Bake for 40 minutes, or until done.

5. To prepare Butter Icing:
