First thing, butter is missing from ingredient list but in recipe. I had to guess, s I had everythng else all mixed up. This is different from any other fruitcake I have ever made and it tastes good. I can really taste the chocolate and the cinnamon. The reason I wouldn't make it again is because it is so dark, all of the very expensive and pretty fruit and nuts I used are just kind of part of a muddy brown block. I doubled the recipe with no problem and got three big loaf pan sized fruitcakes and 4 small loaves.
