This is a very special cake, four layers of cake with an orange, lemon and coconut filling. It is very rich and delicious, perfect for a special occasion like Christmas.
ALMOST like the Japanese Fruitcake my grandmother made. To die for.... - 13 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I have been looking for this taste for years and tried many different recipes. This is the best I have come across so far. It is spicy and not "over sweet". An excellent accompaniment to the holiday dinner after eatting so many very sweet treats during the holiday season. It is also very impressive to look at with 4 layers! I garnished the top with extra raisins, coconut, pecans and a sprinkle of all the spices in the recipe! - 28 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
My mother-in-law made Japanese Fruit Cake every year for Christmas and this tastes very much like hers. My husband was very pleased. I had a lot of leftover icing so, next time, I may make 2 2-layer cakes and give one as a gift or serve one for Thanksgiving and one for Christmas. It makes a very large cake. - 26 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
