This fruitcake is super moist . I made it on Sunday and ate it on Monday and it was like a fruitcake that had been maturing for 3 months. Great if you are behind in your fruitcake baking for christmas. Which is exactly what I want it for.
All of Carol's recipes are great.

This Fruitcake was FABULOUS!!! And I dont even like fruitcake!!!
Outrageous used1 cup cut apricots and used the water softened (not mushy) in for (nectar) liquid to cut calories used 8 ounces of dried pineapple and replaced mixed fruit with pecans. Lasted for 2 weeks wrapped in saran.
I don't even like fruitcake that much--or I didn't think I did! But this cake is so moist and awesome I went on an apricot baking spree. My husband thought I was crazy for baking cakes all day until he took a bite. ;]
