Pineapple Fruitcake

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Tansy1308

I got this recipe from my friend Julie, and her version does not have the mixed spice in it, but I love it with the spice in. Not a traditional fruitcake, but a lovely light fruity cake.

Will admit that 'fruitcake' is what grabbed my attention, but even though this isn't a regular kind of fruitcake recipe, it did give us A GREAT TASTING CAKE! I did include the raisins 'cause I'm a big fan of theirs, but I'd like to make this, at least one more time, & substitute dried cranberries, just to see how they would be (just as good, I'm sure)!
