    I hate it.

    However it's the gift that keeps on giving as it makes a wonderful door stop!

    I LOVE fruitcake! However, I have had a couple of bad ones. One was dry and not very tasty. The other was damp and musty-tasting. I can see how an experience like these would put people off fruitcake. When they are good, they are very very good, and when they are bad, they are horrid.

    I have had some good ones - the Trappist monk one comes to mind - and once from the supermarket, of all places, that I bought on clearance - so surprising. I am not sure that I ever made one. This as not something I grew up with, definitely not part of my heritage.

    my Mum always used to get a skewer after she had kept the cake for a few weeks, and made holes on the top and sloshed Brandy over it then wrapped it back in the foil icon_lol.gif

    I've really tried to like fruitcake. I mean, it sounds like the best of both worlds, right? It's fruit, but it's CAKE!

    Alas, homemade, store-bought, neighbor-made; in waxed paper, in a tin; doused in juice or alcohol... nope. Just can't do it. My first DH loved it, so we got one every year, and I tried making it, but I couldn't enjoy it anyway, anyhow.

    I'd rather not have to eat it.

    Only in cookie form I like it, I have tried the store bought and isn't too bad, but nothing I would go out of my way for. One year my step-mother made her aunty's recipe and it wasn't too bad, but the next year my step-mother was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and can no longer bake with flour.

    Here is the recipe I use Fruitcake Drops.

    Hate. It.
    Passionately!

    Somehow the combination of wonderful ingredients turns out to be much, much less than the sum of the parts. icon_razz.gif

    if you're on the fence, my mom's "holiday bread' recipe is really good.. not too much candied fruit.

    LOVE fruitcake. I made our wedding cake; in those days they were fruitcake. I have been making it almost every year since.
