This is a wonderfully festive cake, perfect for Christmas. It does require some planning ahead as the mix needs to sit overnight before baking.
This is a very tasty fruitcake (yes, it is possible to have one of those!). Feel free to change the fruits to anything your heart desires, just keeping to the amounts listed. I would make this again, but exchange the candied cherries and mixed fruit peel for dried cranberries and currants (for example). - 15 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
The pineapple is a completely new twist on the classic (heavy and in my opinion bland) fruitcake. This pineapple cake has a lighter flavor and is slightly less filing as well. The only part of the recipe I did not understand was the warning not to double the recipe. If done correctly, the cake does fine doubled, trippled, or even quadrupled! If you plan on baking for a crowd, don't turn down this recipe because of the false information. This cake tastes great no matter what! - 16 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
