This is a Christmas fruitcake for folks who don't like glace peel or citron. If you prefer you can subsitute chopped pecans for walnuts. It doesn't need to age.
I made this for a gathering of friends who detest fruitcake. Well low and behold, I had to give this recipe to everyone. thanks so much for this perfect recipe. I will use it from now on whenever I decide to make a scrumptious fruitcake. - 28 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

I only cooked it for 2 hrs. It was brown and Dry and hardened after it cooled a bit. - 16 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I used to love fruitcake until I lost all my teeth to nerve damage in my mouth (never had a cavity in my life either). Every recipe for fruitcake has walnuts or pecans or hard citron. This recipe has no citron,great, but wow it has alot of nuts. Any idea of how to adapt the recipe so that even I can eat it? - 21 Dec 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
