candied pineapple slices
1 1/2 cups
candied mixed fruit peel
Ick! This fruitcake (even though it was covered while baking) was dry, crumbly, dense and hard as a brick!!! A small church near where I grew up used to make and sell a (very moist) light fruitcake as a fundraiser. If anyone knows of a recipe like that please post!
I did not care for this recipe. I'm obviously not trying this one again!!!
The other reviews were pretty right on, this recipe is kind of dry and crumbly but...it makes really good toast and I even cut it into slices and then baked it and made a kind of biscotti and it was delicious. And the over all flavor of this fruit cake is really good, so dont give up on it just work on it a bit.
