A really good fruit cake recipe, one you can eat the same day you make it; it's even better if you let sit for awhile.

I tried this fruitcake in the last minute before Xmas. I substituted the sugar with rum-flavoured brown sugar and the result was fantastic. I baked two loaves and they disappeared within a day! Thank you for this easy and tasty recipe! Niki from Hungary

This is the first fruit cake that I have ever baked. I know it is not Christmas, but I love fruit cake and this was the only recipe that I could find that did not have brandy or rum in it and it is the best. I can't stop eating it.

I am NOT a cook having to learn after my wife's death. But this recipe was easy to follow and it was FANTASTIC. It tasted like the fruit cake I have always eaten growing up.
