Christmas Fruitcake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2003
I made this fruitcake twice because I made a major mistake the first time, inadvertently using all of the rum in the batter rather than half. The second time I used the correct amount of rum, and cut the butter from 8 tablespoons to 2 tablespoons and cut both the molasses and milk in half. I also added 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder. The cakes rose nicely and weren't nearly as greasy as the first time.

This Christmas cake is absolutely wonderful. I've made several, have substituted the mango with Papaya, raisins, etc. and it still turns out perfect. This is the best all around fruit cake I have ever made.

I loved this recipe. I made it several years ago to give as gift. I made then in mini loaf pans and gave them out. Everyone ranted about of moist they were. The cakes were so good that when I lost teh recipe I came back here looking for it a full 2 years later. Great Job!
