Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 9X13 inch pan. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat eggs and 1 ½ cups sugar together until smooth. Beat in flour mixture and fruit cocktail with juice. Spread into prepared pan. Mix together the brown sugar and chopped walnuts; sprinkle on top of batter.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and immediately poke holes in cake with fork.

In a small saucepan, combine sugar, butter and evaporated milk. Bring to a boil and stir in coconut. Pour topping evenly over cake.
