    This is the exact recipe my mother in law handed down to me in 1972. Instead of wine, I believe she used cognac or brandy for her soaking. It is by far, the best recipe for homemade fruitcake. Going to make a few for this Christmas. Definitely best when made 2 months ahead, and kept in a tightly sealed tin.

    This is the best fruitcake. My mom has made this every year for Christmas and Thanksgiving since I was a child. People who hate "fruitcake" love this.. It is even better if you make it in advance and wrap tight and keep in a cake cover(I have a tupperware one). It gets so moist and yummy.

    I only gave this 4 stars due to the fact that I thought it was a tad too sweet. Next time I make it (and I most definitely will) I will use less sugar (the fruit adds to the sugar content) and also will only use about 3 cups of pecans BUT it was a beautifully moist cake even though I used a square cake tin that was a bit too big and therefore the cake didn't rise a lot.
