      I usually include considerably more fruit in my fruitcakes, but know that some people like it a bit less fruity, I decided to make this to include on the table tomorrow! And, my initial taste testing tells me that it will be much appreciated by some guests, I know! Rather than pick & choose the fruits that I used, I did just finely chop a mixed bag, & the cake turned out beautifully! Many thanks for posting the recipe!
