Boiled Fruitcake6 Reviews
“This recipe produces a really moist fruit cake it was given to me by my mom, and it's really easy. My mom uses it for Christmas cake by icing it. I use it for birthdays, Christmas, or just for a treat.” - by Mark Richards

"A very good fruitcake. What I really like is that you make it in one pot that you cook and mix in. I used lt. brown sugar and added chopped dates and white raisins to the standard candied fruit marin..." See moreated in a few spoons of brandy and apple juice. I also added vanilla and almond extract. Turns out perfect. Make in a big pot, not a saucepan. I used teflon and also teflon pan to bake in. Slid right out. Will be even better after it ages a day or two."
"The first time i made this i followed it to a "T" and although wrapped and kept in a sealed box it went dry. The second time i made it, i soaked the fruit in brandy over night and substituted brandy f..." See moreor the milk. I left it sealed for a month before trying it, and it was lovely. It also stayed moist much longer than the original one."
