“This is designed for people who don't like fruitcake. It is not as sweet or as dry. My husband hated fruitcake until he had mine.”

Quick, easy, and good! I've never made fruitcake before because of the time involved with other recipes! Next time I will dredge my raisins in flour first as they seemed to sink when it baked. I made it in 2 loaf pans lined with parchment paper, and cut the baking time to about 50 minutes- worked great!
