    Sylvia Brown's Note:

    This recipe I got from my dear Aunt who has been gone for over 30 years now. People who don't like Fruitcake love this one. This is the best one I have ever eaten, my daughter Christine can eat a 2 pound cake by herself. This cake is very rich.

      OUTSTANDING! Flavorful, moist and rich. I halved the recipe and baked it in two loaf pans. Cooking time at 225 was just under 3 hours. I can quit searching for a good fruitcake recipe. This just became MY Fruitcake recipe. Thanks for an oldie and goodie! :-)

      I love this non-alcoholic version of this wonderful fruitcake. I personally loved the spice combination used so I doubled them. I also cut back the dates to 1/2 a pound and added a 1/2 a pound of raisins. LOVED IT!! Thank you so much for sharing! ~ Christy
