"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

2 dozen glazed donuts
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (15 oz.) can fruit cocktail (undrained)
2 eggs, beaten
1 (9 oz.) box raisins
1 pinch salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cube donuts into a large bowl. Mix all ingredients and pour on top of donuts and let soak until all liquid has been absorbed by donuts. You can make the night before or at least several hours before baking so donuts can soak up more liquid.

Put in 9 by 13 baking dish. Bake for about 1 hour until center has jelled. Be careful it has a tendency to burn on top. Top with Butter Glaze:

Butter Glaze
1 stick butter
1/2 box of powdered sugar
1-tsp. vanilla extract
Add milk as needed to make a thin glaze
Melt butter and slowly stir in confectioners' sugar. Add vanilla and heat until bubbly. Pour over donuts while still hot.
