Ok I have to admit it, I really DO like fruitcake! We always had fruitcake in the house around the holiday times when I was little. I do remember one year my mother made her own. I can remember seeing them sitting in the bottom of the fridge being "soaked" and wanting so bad to sneak into them. lol
The cakes I remember having were filled with cherries, raisins, nuts and were a dark colored bread. The bread was just a little firmer then most quick breads I've made. We always had our slices topped with butter. Yum!
I have never made my own fruitcake though, maybe I'll try it next year!
About 8 years ago we went to visit some dear friends for Christmas. She had made fruitcake, but also another type. It was more of a cherry pound cake. Oh that was so good. I have the recipe here some were. We've moved since then but I should try and find the recipe.
