    Chris in Cocoa's Note:

    If I don't tell anyone that its fruitcake, this disappears at parties. It has a very light texture and looks like unfrosted carrot cake at first glance.

      I had a yen for fruitcake, but, I did not want to go through the trouble of all the buying and chopping of fruit and nuts. I had most of these ingredients in the house, so I tried this cake. WOW! what a great surprise. It is so moist and tasty. I can't believe it. I'm sure this will be one of my staple cakes from now on. Thanks so much. Joanie Biddulph.

      Thanks Chris - you made my dream come true. I've looked at Fruit Cake recipes & I was always afraid I'd create a multi-colored brick. The ingredients are all the things I just love & the cake came out very moist & fruity. Even my hubby liked it & he said he hates fruit cake. I can make this anytime. I bet we could substitute different dried fruits like craisins or dried cherries since they are available all year. Yum Yum!
