Some folks have asked if I have a fruitcake recipe. I don’t. But Sister makes one of the most wonderful fruitcakes I have ever tasted. It is sort of like fruit with a bit of crumbs and lots of liquor to keep it moist. I never used to be a big fruitcake fan, but in my 40’s I seem to have really taken to a good fruitcake. Please check out this link to an older post on fruitcake, and scroll down to the comments section for the recipe. I have to admit I have never made it myself. And like many of Sister’s beneficiaries, I simply wait until I am given one. I think sister bakes her cakes months before she sends them out so that they mature a bit. I have eaten it some 4-6 months after it was made and it was still superb. Please try to make it as written in the recipe the first time around. Substitutions often mess things up. We know someone who added some pineapple instead of the specified dried fruit and it was a disaster… :) Fruitcake is another one of those iconic holiday baked goods that despite its brilliant history, has also spawned some horrific relatives that while called fruitcakes, should really be called something else… Enjoy!
