In the past, I never liked fruitcake, but I wanted to try it again since it's been awhile. I thought this was a safe bet since it was posted by someone else who didn't like fruitcake...it is soooo good! I made two loaves and gave one to my mom as a gift and have been enjoying the other myself. I made one little tweek, I added about a shot of spiced rum to the fruit and mixed well before adding the flour. It was great. Thanks for posting this!
This was FANTASTIC! The flavor was so much more tasty than the usual fruitcake flavor everyone thinks of. To me, it tasted like coconut macaroons....with stuff added (a nut here and there,n or a bit of cherry, etc.) I definitely would recommend this to anyone wanting to try a fruitcake, as the texture was very dense and sweet (as you would expect from a fruitcake) and being homemade, well that just speaks for itself. Thanks for sharing! ~Sue
Wow, I've never tried a coconutty fruit cake before! This is absolutely delicious.
FYI ~ Did you know that the 'Society for the Protection and Preservation of Fruitcake' can be found online? Anyway, I LOVE FRUITCAKE, & when I saw this recipe posted, I just had to try it! I'd never thought of using coconut or sweetened condensed milk, but it works here! Am hoping that some of this cake will last for another couple of weeks, at least, 'cause I KNOW the taste of fruitcake definitely gets better with age! Thanks, Sharon, for sharin'!!
