Texas Tornado Cake

Texas Tornado Cake is spectacular. What a delicious and easy sheet cake to make! The cake is made with a can of fruit cocktail in the batter, then before you bake the cake you sprinkle a streusel topping with nuts over the top. After the cake comes out of the oven you add a boiled coconut topping and pour it on the cake while hot. Oh, soooo scrumptious!
