Boiled Fruitcake

Boiled Fruitcake created by JustJanS

I know a lot of people don't like fruitcake, but I love it and can't understand what's not to love;-). This is a nice simple one from my high school cookbook. I've made a couple of changes to the original recipe over the years.

    A good fruitcake !! Excellent flavoring also. I only had to bake this for 45 minutes, and it was done. Otherwise, a very tasty fruitcake.
