Great switch from traditional fruitcake! I'm known for always making (and giving) fruitcakes to family and friends during the holidays, but due to recent health issues, I don't have the arm strength necessary to stir the heavy batter. Found this and tried it - my usual "customers" are thrilled! Just like Mikekey stated - like mini-fruitcakes. The only thing I did different was add rum soaked raisins, and added rum flavor to the frosting. Thanks for the recipe - it'll be a regular for me!!
My grandma's fruitcake recipe was never written down so no one really knows what all went into it. There was a Polish bakery that had a cookie very similar to a fruitcake and this recipe brought back wonderful memories. I used rum extract, raisins, and maraschino cherries for the dried fruit.and also the garnish. Very addictive and very delicious! Mikekey thank you so much for great memories during a difficult time. Food always brings a family closer together! Made and reviewed for the Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.
