Want a fruitcake for Christmas but don't want to go to the trouble? This recipe uses date loaf mix from the supermarket and a handful of mixed glace fruit for an easy and delicious alternative.
wow! i still can't get over the fact how a box of date quick bread was the base for such a tasty fruitcake! my candied fruit selection consisted of 8 oz. each: cherries, pineapple & a mixed variety. the fruitcake baked up perfectly in a 10" tube pan & was done in 85 minutes. thanks diane, i made your yummy recipe 5 days ago & we're still nibbling away..... - 26 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Quick, easy, and good! I've never made fruitcake before because of the time involved with other recipes! Next time I will dredge my raisins in flour first as they seemed to sink when it baked. I made it in 2 loaf pans lined with parchment paper, and cut the baking time to about 50 minutes- worked great! - 17 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
