Ugly Duckling Cake
Put eggs and canola oil into mixing bowl and beat slightly with mixer. Add fruit cocktail with its juice and the brown sugar. Mix slightly. Add cake mix, pudding, and coconut (nuts if you want). Mix until smooth--about 3-4 minutes medium speed.
Pour into long cake pan (greased and floured) 13x9x2. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes. Test with toothpick. If toothpick comes out clean, it's done. If not, bake a few more minutes and retest.
For the icing, put the butter, white sugar, and evaporated milk in a one quart saucepan. Bring to a boil, and then boil until it thickens. Add one cup of flaked coconut and 1/2 cups of chopped nuts (optional--pecans work the best in this cake).
When cake is cool, pour icing mixture over the top and spread with a spatula or a knife.
