Boiled Fruitcake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

A very good fruitcake. What I really like is that you make it in one pot that you cook and mix in. I used lt. brown sugar and added chopped dates and white raisins to the standard candied fruit marinated in a few spoons of brandy and apple juice. I also added vanilla and almond extract. Turns out perfect. Make in a big pot, not a saucepan. I used teflon and also teflon pan to bake in. Slid right out. Will be even better after it ages a day or two.

Family members who hate fruitcake couldn't get enough when I made this recipe! I didn't use candied citron; dried cranberries, cherries, dates, and crystallized finely chopped ginger instead. Then I made a syrup with maraschino cherry juice, spiced rum and brandy, drenched the fruitcake and covered for a couple of days. Delicious!

Bad for you, but oh so good. I don't think I could actually serve it out fast enough and almost everyone went back for seconds.

Cake is simple to make. baked 2 smaller cakes & it took an hour in total to bake. Made it early for Christmas. Cut one to taste. really yummy & rich colour & light caramel taste (prob due to using brown sugar) & fruits did not sink..(which usually happen in past recipes). Next time will use white sugar. Keeper recipe :)

The first time i made this i followed it to a "T" and although wrapped and kept in a sealed box it went dry. The second time i made it, i soaked the fruit in brandy over night and substituted brandy for the milk. I left it sealed for a month before trying it, and it was lovely. It also stayed moist much longer than the original one.
