There's just enough cake to hold the nuts and fruit together, and no nasty citron. This is one terrific cake.

I have been looking for this recipe for a while. It is wonderful!!! Very nice presentation when sliced as the cherries are bright, and this is VERY good. Trust me!

This recipe -modified- has been a family favorite for over 20 years. I use 1 cup each of Brazil nuts, walnuts, and pecans or any combination thereof depending on the recipients preferences (one sister does not like Brazil nuts). As for maraschino cherries, I use half red and half green. Being sodium conscious, I do not add the salt. Also, I usually cut the dates and cherries in half, especially when using mini-loaf pans.
