    I am guilty of posting a recipe I haven't made yet, but I have almost everything and will be soon:) This was a featured recipe on the Food Network and I liked the combination of fruits used in this, all tasty and familiar. It has a 5star rating on the Foodtv site. The creator of the recipe, Lynn Kearney, owns and operates a B&B and serves this there.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 24

    Yield:

    loaves

    Units: US | Metric

    Fruit

    Dough

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a medium bowl mix together the fruit, walnuts, lemon zest and brandy. Cover and allow to macerate in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours or up to 7 days, stirring occasionally. Drain off any excess liquid before making batter.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour 2 9"x5" loaf pans.
    3. 3
      In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and beat well.
    4. 4
      Sift together the dry ingredients and toss 1/2 c of this mixture with the fruit. This will help to "suspend" the fruit evenly throughout the loaf.
    5. 5
      Add the remainder of the dry mix in two batches to the butter mixture, alternating with the orange juice and brandy.
    6. 6
      Beat until incorporated. Fold in the floured fruit and nuts.

      Spoon batter evenly between the 2 loaf pans.
    8. 8

      I was looking for a fruitcake recipe that looked like it would fit in a bundt pan and didn't have milk as an ingredient. I followed the dough part of this recipe exactly with the exception of replacing the brandy with orange juice. The dough mixed up beautifully - smooth and light. I made the fruit part based on what I had in my cupboard, which ended up being about three cups of golden raisins, walnuts, currents, dates and dried figs which I diced and soaked in orange juice. Anyway, this made a perfectly lovely bundt fruitcake which I frosted with an orange/vanilla icing. Delicious. Thanks for posting the recipe.
