For those of you who hate fruitcake, make this recipe and eat your words. I can honestly say I am not a huge fruitcake fan, but a slice every so often sounds good. Well, I found this recipe and I am hooked. This recipe is well written and the ingredients are redily available. I found making the recipe was very easy and fun. I did not use citron and chose to use more dried apricots and also some red and green cherries for extra color. I made three cakes. One large cake and a whole bunch of mini bundt cakes for gifts. I wrapped each mini- bundt in green saran wrap and tied with red curling ribbon. What a pretty gift it made. Thank you for posting petitfour!
