Texas Brazil Nut Fruitcake8 Reviews
“This recipe was given to my mother in 1948 by a dear lady in Corpus Christi. There is just enough batter to hold the whole fruits and nuts together. For optimum satisfaction, leave all the fruit and nuts whole.” - by Juanita
Original recipe yields 3 - 9x5 inch loaves
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease three 9x5 inch loaf pans, line them with parchment paper, and grease the paper.
- Beat eggs, salt and vanilla together until very light and lemon colored. Add sugar, 1 cup of the flour and 2 teaspoons baking powder. Put brazil nuts, walnuts, pecans, red and green cherries into a large bowl. Dust with the remaining 1/2 cup flour. Then add the egg and sugar mixture. This is a very stiff mixture. Mix with hands.
- Press into 3 - 9x5 inch loaf pans which you have lined with parchment paper and have greased both pan and paper. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

"I loved this cake! All those nuts is what made this sooo good, but it did take a long time to chop them all up by hand, and a long time to bake. I added some spices to mine. My grand kids didn't think..." See more much of it, but what do they know??It is a great holiday cake, and keeps forever in the ice box."
