      Very good but did not need to bake as long as recipe indicates. I'll make again possibly adding vanilla extract.

      This was the one I was searching for. It is so good and very close to the one I had years ago. I certainlly recommend it and yes, its almost a fruit cake and is moist. I love it. I did leave out the coconut, because I don't like it, but its very good. Thank you,

      Very good and I plan to make again. However, I will add a little cinnamon, cloves or or nutmeg to spice it up a little.
