This is THE perfect fruitcake recipie. The only changes i made were to double the amount of brandy and used it to soak the fruits for 24 hours before making the cake. Good cake texture and not too much fruit. The cake mixture, using four eggs, filled an eight inch round tin and took THREE AND A HALF HOURS to bake at the stated temperature. Thanks for sharing.

I thought this was the best fruitcake I've eaten. I was specifically looking for a recipe that called for real dried fruit, no candied stuff. My daughter-in-law and I made 3 of them a month ago. We waited a month to eat any. It is so moist and very spicey. I brushed on a little brandy every other day for about the first 10 days after baking, then just left it wrapped. Even family members who questioned why we would make a fruitcake liked this one. Wonderful!

It is delicious. I gave them away as Christmas presents and received great compliments. I'll be baking it again for Chinese New Year. This time, I'll start earlier so that it will have at least 1 month of resting time and maybe more brandy.
