'Tis the season for fruitcake! This one is more candy than cake and oh so delicious. Keep it in the refrigerator indefinitely. Really.

My mom died 9 years ago, and I didn't write down her Fruit Cake Recipe... Cathy Thank you, this was the one. It is the only Fruit Cake I eat and it is so easy that my 10 year old loves to make it. I just couldn't remember the amounts. Thank you for submitting it. Robin Perez

Was VERY rich. Not sure if I will make this again but I sliced it very thin (had to use a wet hot knife to get through it neatly) and spread it out among the gift goodie plates we give for Christmas. When I served some at a Christmas party it was eaten with the candy/Christmas goodies and seemed to be enjoyed - I got several positive comments. The flavor was very sweet - almost a candy cake rather than a fruit cake. Make sure you LOVE coconut before making this as it is a main contributor to the taste and texture.
