I was looking for a way to use up the last of my Christmas Egg Nog. The original called for 1/2 c candied cherries, 1/2 c raisins, and 1/2 c nuts, but I used figs and apricots instead. I also used a little rum (just make sure rum, brandy, or extract, and nog together equals 1 cup). It is sort of like a pound cake--without the pound! Mix a little eggnog with some powdered sugar and drizzle over it for a more elegant presentation and flavor.
