Preparation

Use cake mix without pudding. For pudding, use 4-serving size; vanilla, lemon or pistachio instant pudding. Preheat oven to 350 deg. Combine cake and pudding mixes, eggs, oil, and orange extract in a large bowl. Add fruits, nuts and raisins, mix thoroughly. Pour into greased, floured tube pan and bake one hour. Let cool 15 minutes before removing from the pan. Makes 12-16 servings. Fermented Fruit Starter: Do not drain fruit. Combine peaches and 2-1/2 c sugar and yeast in a 1-gallon glass or crockery jar with a loose fitting lid, stir to mix. Stir daily for 10 days. On the 10th day, add pineapple and 2-1/2 c sugar. Stir daily for another 10 days. Add cherries, fruit cocktail and remaining sugar and stir daily for 10 more days. Drain fruit, reserve juice for the next batch. Makes enough fruit for 4 cakes. To make more starter, use 1-1/2 cups starter juice instead of yeast with peaches and sugar. Posted to MC-Recipe Digest V1 #518 by Danette on Mar 15, 1997
