Steel Magnolias is a Southern staple, and, obviously, so is Dolly Parton. Truvy Jones (Dolly Parton's character in the movie) makes a killer Cuppa Cuppa Cuppa Cake, and this recipe is about as easy as it gets. Simply mix together flour, sugar, and fruit cocktail, and bake until golden brown. She recommends serving it over ice cream to cut the sweetness. We'd recommend using self-rising flour in the recipe, and adding in a little extra fruit cocktail if your batter is too dry.
[MUSIC] What is the one you were talking about, a cup a, a cup a, a cup a? That's simple, you don't need to write that down. That's a cup of flower, a cup of sugar, a cup of fruit cocktail with the juice. And you mix and bake at 350 to a golden bubbly. Sounds awfully rich. It is. So I serve it over ice cream to cut the sweetness. [MUSIC]
