This is an excellent light fruit cake with a mix of glace fruits. It can be cooked in other size pans, just make sure the pans are filled no more than 3/4 full.

There were a lot of complaints on this recipe(on the other listing as it appears twice). This recipe works great with a few modifications. 1. You can use any type of dried fruit to equal 6 cups total that you like, ie light/dark raisins, chopped dried apricots, dried cherries, cranberries, currants etc 2. Add 1 extra cup butter. Use a mix of sugars ie white, brown and splenda to equal 2 cups. 3. Add some cinnamon/nutmeg to enhance flavor 4. Finally and this is the key set the timer in 1 hour increments so it does not over bake as baking time of 3 hours will probably overbake and dry it out. 5. For those who like this you can add a couple of tablespoons rum every few days til Christmas and this also makes it moist and tasty. - 10 Dec 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I followed this recipe exactly, except that I replaced the almonds with pumkin seeds, and only baked for 2 hours. It came out dry and crumbly, although the flavor is good. - 14 Dec 2016 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
