    Steingrim's Note:

    I wanted to make fruitcake this year that people would enjoy and actually eat. Here is the recipe I came up with. My sister-in-law even asked for it! (Please note that my wife came up with the title, not me.) Time does not include "curing." (can also make 3 to 4 full sized loaves, approx)

      This recipe is really fabulous. I made this three weeks ago and tasted it tonight to make sure it was good. It is and then some! I made some changes based on what I had on hand. I didn't use Southern Comfort but 1/2 rum and 1/2 triple sec. I got five loaves from this which took only about an hours and 10 minutes to bake. It's fabulous!
