      leeann,love this cake!! Instead of making the cake as written,I made mini cakes(makes 5 mini cakes.I baked cakes at 350* for 25 minutes,then lower temperture to 300* for 25 minutes. These little cakes are great for sharing with friends and neighbors,wrap in clear or colored cellophane and a bow.My Dh says," how did you get the cake so moist" The answer is "This is a great recipe"Thanks so much for sharing this recipe,leenann.I will always be grateful.Almost forgot,the next batch will make 15 mini cakes--and to freeze them is a added bonus.

      My wife used to make this cake when we were in the Middle East. It is wonderful and the fruit will have a lovely brandy odor in the kitchen. When I took her home the starter recipe she made me get the cake recipe, also. We had the pecans in the Middle East but they're not available here in China. It is definitely worth the wait.
