Christmas Fruitcake

Submitted by: Karen Uffelman 
It's a shame that fruitcake as a species gets such a bad rap. With its two key ingredients--rum and butter--it ought to be a hit. This recipe includes dried cherries, mango, cranberries, and currants soaked in rum overnight (a week or a month or more is even better). After it's baked, it ages in cheesecloth with additional splashes of rum. Let it ripen for 10 weeks for best flavor.

This cake is a rich, dark, moist fruit cake, very flavorful at Christmas. Try icing with almond paste for a more festive touch. This recipe is started in October or November so as to let it mellow before the holidays. I remember very well my mother storing her fruit cake in an old butter churn that belonged to my grandmother and great grandmother. I wish that I had that old crock.

This is the fruitcake my mother made from the time I was a little girl. It isn't full of the citrus fruits, and I've never met anyone who didn't like it. Originally submitted to CakeRecipe.com. You can use fruit juice instead of the brandy, if you prefer.

This is a lovely white cake studded with glace cherries and golden raisins-a nice alternative to fruitcake. This loaf freezes well, too.
