Default Fruit cocktail cake

I lost my recipe for fruit cocktail cake - it's actually a cross between cake and a cobbler. I remember it was a cup of this and a cup of that - maybe about 4 different things.

Sounds yummy ! I'll try it, too.

The one I had was like a cup of flour, a cup of sugar, a cup of milk, maybe an egg, some butter and a large can of fruit - but I'm still not sure

This is the recipe that I use, too.

Maybe it had a pkg of vanilla pudding added to the batter, on second thought.
