This is a simple and delicious fruit and nut cake. It's actually better made ahead of time as it just gets better and better.
This is the best fruitcake ever! It's the kind of fruitcake I grew up with, and I had been searching for this recipe for a long time. The nuts really make the cake -- very crunchy and chewy and dense. Beautiful to look at too, each slice like a stained-glass window. The first time I made this, I ate half a loaf in one sitting -- it is that irresistible! - 13 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This being my first fruitcake, I really didn't know what to expect. I didn't add as much fruit as the recipe said and it came out great. Nice mellow flavor. Let set for a week or two. - 16 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
make one of these without alcohol for the kids. My grandchildren like this as well as fruit cookies. - 21 Oct 2000 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
