    LizP's Note:

    I hate fruitcake. So do I. In 40 years I never tasted a fruitcake that I didn't spit out. Homemade, store bought....GROSS! A friend of mine from an online community shared this recipe with me and swore it wasn't the fruitcake I was used to. I decided to give it a try and it was so delicious that we only gave away 1 of the 4 loaves and kept the rest for ourselves! I make it way ahead of time and keep brushing it with brandy for a few months and rewrapping it and storing it in the fridge. Please try is delicious.

    1. 1
      Cream together butter, brown sugar and honey.
    2. 2
      Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
    3. 3
      Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, allspice and cinnamon. Fold HALF of this mixture into the batter.

      Pour batter into 4 greased and floured 9x5 loaf pans and bake in a very slow oven (250 degrees) for 3 hours or until done. Time can vary greatly based on ovens. Cool in pan before removing.

      Sprinkle cakes with brandy and Grand Marnier. I use apricot or cherry brandy.

      Wrap well and refrigerate until Christmas.
