It may not be the prettiest cake that you’ve ever seen, but this Texas Tornado Cake is loaded with flavor and has a nice mix of textures.
You can have it all done in about an hour, and you can make about 15 servings for roughly $10, making it a family-friendly and budget-friendly option. Plus, it is so delicious your whole family will love it – make sure you have the recipe at hand if you’re serving this to guests. They are going to be begging you for it! I have brought this to several potlucks and I know by now to make a few copies of the recipe, to take with me!
It seems a bit unfair to call this Texas tornado cake a “budget option,” considering the fruit in there (provided via fruit cocktail) and that lovely flavor and texture of coconut, but I guess that goes to show you: things don’t always have to cost a lot to be really flavorful and satisfying.
