Fruitcake People Actually Love

Okay Some People Actually Love

It is true. In the good old days, my husband and I were the only ones in my family that appreciated it. I could make two loaves, and it would last quite awhile.

Until I tasted this recipe, I had hated fruitcake. It
doesn’t have that stuff that no one has ever heard of or
eats except  in fruitcake and Hot Cross Buns.( Ugh)

Then one Christmas my mother-in-law offered me a piece of fruitcake at Christmas time. To be honest, since I did not like fruitcake, I just took a piece to be polite. Boy was I surprised. It became my favorite Christmas treat.

Like I told you, since the kids thought fruitcake was gross, we did not try and convince them, and my husband and I kept it our own little secret. Then the inevitable happened. One day one of the kids tried a bit, and surprise, surprise, they loved it.

Word spread, and soon many of the kids decided they also love it. So, now I have to make multiple fruitcakes, and they don’t last nearly as long as they used to. It is all good though, I don’t mind sharing such a treat with the people I love.

So, here is a recipe I kept close for a lot of years, but now, I will share it with your and your family and hope you enjoy it as much as our family does. Let me know if you change your opinion about fruitcake.
