Removing fruitcakes from their pans can be difficult unless the pan is lined with waxed paper. This is my favourite fruitcake. It is filled with 3 cups of nuts, dates and maraschino cherries. It does not contain any fat. I use dates from the health food store which are dry and delicious. This is not too sweet or cloying. I make it all the time. Don’t wait until Christmas it is very easy and quick.
