A nice spice with candied fruit. The original recipe came from 1001 Cookie Recipe but over the years I have made a few changes. My family gives out cookies at Christmas time and this is one of the standard cookies. When I make them I use the candied fruit from our local spice importer. You may want to chop the fruit a little more.
The recipe is from Fannie Farmer Cookbook (1972 edition). It is a buttery dense cake. I have been making it for years. My family loves this cake. My daughter is especially fond of the ends. I have made it to serve plain or as an ice cream cake topped with a frozen fruit mixture. You must use an electric mixer to get the batter light and fluffy.
