I used to love fruitcake until I lost all my teeth to nerve damage in my mouth (never had a cavity in my life either). Every recipe for fruitcake has walnuts or pecans or hard citron. This recipe has no citron,great, but wow it has alot of nuts. Any idea of how to adapt the recipe so that even I can eat it?
