    Baking Girl's Note:

    My mom got this delicious recipe from a newspaper twenty years ago when we lived in Germany. She never liked fruit cake until she made this one! She said this recipe was worth keeping and I would like to share it with you! It is delicious and if you never liked fruit cake, this one is worth trying!

      I gave it four stars because I thought it was great, buy my husband thought it was good. The only substitution I made is I used candied fruit instead of dried apricot and candied orange peel and I soaked the raisins in some brandy for about 20 minutes. Thanks for sharing.
