This was excellant. I substituted figs and dates for half of the apples, left out the pecans and used candied fruit mix with citron in it instead of just sticking with the cherries and pineapple. Oh and I substituted allspice, cloves and nutmeg for the cinnamong. It came out very moist. I let it sit for two weeks in Christmas Mix since my family likes it alchoholic. I left one of the cakes out of the alchohol and just wrapped really good. Both were great and everyone loved it. This only made two cakes for me though and I used standard loaf size pans. Still great.
