Golden Brandy Bundt Fruitcake

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by Dorel

This is so moist and fruity tasting. I have also made it in 2 loaf pans and it takes about1 1/2 hours.I have also soaked the fruit overnight in 1/2 cup of the brandy called for in recipe for extra flavour.

Hi Dorel; Okay, this is a great recipe, so nice and fruity, just love it. The only problem I had was wondering what to do with the left over Apricot Brandy. Well, I ended up drinking it, then realized I should have saved it to marinate the cake later. Thanks for sharing a great recipe. This is much like the cake that I make. "Uncle Bill"
