Something I only make during the holidays. Of course you must like fruitcake. The difference being that instead of making a huge cake these make just the right amount and can be frozen to enjoy whenever.

- 3⁄4 lb candied cherry
- 1 lb candied pineapple
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder

- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 3 eggs
- Combine the pecans, dates, cherries, and pineapple.
- Add the baking powder, salt, flour, and sugar.
- Mix well with hands.
- Beat eggs until foamy.
- Add to the mixture and mix well.

These were so easy to make! Hubby took me to the store day before yesterday and I loaded up on ingredients! We won't have a car for a week, so I've been in the kitchen! Very good! Thanks for posting. Made for Chef's Pick at KK.
I made up a smaller batch of 10 servings and used our mini muffin tin greased with Pan Release, Professional Pan Coating (Better Than Pam Spray!) and it worked very well. I used our favorite Sunmaid Fruit Bits for the fruit, and (this time), made without pecans for Buddha (next time I'll do half with pecans for me). After putting my eyes back in my head from the WOW! flavor of these little treats, I gave some to Buddha to try and he got the same WOW! in his eyes. We looked like a couple of cartoon characters, lol. These are sooooo good! If you don't like fruit cake, we strongly suggest you try these! Yummy! Thanks Sue, for sharing this fantastic treat. Oh, forgot to mention, these are so quick and easy to whip up! :)
