My husband LOVES this recipe! I'd prefer more candied fruit and less batter, but this one's a keeper. Brought it into work and everyone who likes fruitcake asked for the recipe. I've been looking for one that doesn't have to sit for weeks in cheesecloth, and this is it. Thanks!

If you prefer a fruitcake that is more cake and less fruit, this is the perfect cake. It's moist and can be made ahead if desired. I use 5 mini breadpans for mine and it bakes in about 45 minutes. If you lay a piece of parchment in the bottom of the pan and spray with non-stick spray, cleaning up the pan is a breeze. Addendum to my review (12/28/07) The last few years, instead of using the candied fruits, I have used mixed dried fruits - apricots, dried cranberries, pineapple, apple, etc. and some candied cherries for color. It isn't a lot less calories, but it is at least a little healthier and we like it a lot that way. Just use scissors to snip the fruit into small pieces; dip the scissors in flour in periodically to keep the fruit from sticking.

Made this recipe exactly as written. Used a bundt pan and baked for two hours. It is delicious! My husband, a fruitcake connoisseur, absolutely loves it. It is so easy to make, I'll make it throughout the year, not just during the holidays. Thanks for a great recipe!
