Can something be this easy ??

Top Review by Sydney Mike

I diced up dried apricots, peaches, pears, dates & cherries (no raisins this time around!) for this recipe & did include a slight bit of apricot brandy when making this fruitcake! Definitely a simple recipe to make (& much less time consuming if you use a package of diced dried fruit, I know) & although it is a cake made with fruit, don't expect it to be like the usual fruitcake with all the candied fruit (a good thing, in my opinion)! Thanks for this nice change-of-pace recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed as a recipenap in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #34]
