"This is the best fruitcake ever! It's the kind of fruitcake I grew up with, and I had been searching for this recipe for a long time. The nuts really make the cake -- very crunchy and chewy and dense...." See more Beautiful to look at too, each slice like a stained-glass window. The first time I made this, I ate half a loaf in one sitting -- it is that irresistible!"
"This being my first fruitcake, I really didn't know what to expect. I didn't add as much fruit as the recipe said and it came out great. Nice mellow flavor. Let set for a week or two...." See more"
