Mamma's Icebox Fruitcake

READY IN: 6hrs 10mins
Recipe by Jellyqueen

My family doesn't really like the traditional fruitcake, but will eat this like crazy. The thing I like most about it is that it freezes really good. You can make it a month in advance, freeze, defrost and serve later. Cook time is actually chill time.

My mother made this fruitcake every Christmas and we all loved it. So much better than store bought. My mother is gone now and I never got her recipe, so I thank you so very much for this.
