Another goody from McCalls Cooking School. Here's what the book says: "Here's a festive cake you can serve all through the year as well as on holidays. It's a light fruitcake, studded with raisins, nuts and cherries mellowed in bourbon, Southern style. Slice thinly and serve with coffee, sherry or even eggnog. It keeps well, and costs less than most fruitcake." Cook time does not include prep time for nuts/fruits. Make ahead a few days- it needs to mellow in the fridge.
