The is what I call a white Christmas cake with dry apples, pears, Apricots. I don't like the dark rich fruit cakes so the is what I have come up with. Add time to soak fruit the longer that it sits in the brandy the better it gets

  1. Place sugar, pineapple undrained fruit in a bowl and cover with brandy. Let sit for 24-72 hours.
  2. Then put it in to a saucepan with baking powder and butter.
  3. Bring to boil and boil for 3 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat and cool completely.
  5. Sift flours and mix into the cold fruit mix with well beaten eggs.

  7. Back at 350°F 35-50 minutes.
  8. Note: cover with a brown paper bag if it is not cooked in the middle to stop the top from burning.
