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.

I started fixing this recipe over thirty years ago. The recipe I have also includes halved red and green glaced cherries. This makes the cake much prettier without the addition of citron. I bake it in a 9 x 13 pan. For gift giving, I cut the cake into 6 bars that are 9 inches long and about 2 inches wide. I wrap each bar in plastic and then wrap again in foil. These fruitcake bars can be made 5 or 6 weeks before they are needed and then stored in the freezer. I hope my ideas will help you. I am so happy to see that someone else enjoys this fruitcake. Thanks Brittany.
