red candied cherries
1 1/2 cups
green candied cherries
1 (8 ounce) package
diced candied citron
candied pineapple, diced
2 2/3 cups
4 1/2 cups
1 1/2 teaspoons
cream of tartar
The low quantity of fat and high amount of flour in this recipe, as well as the whipped egg whites, too long baking time, too high baking temperature and too little liquid, makes a tough, dry fruitcake. I wasted over $20 on this recipe.
I am rating this a 3 but only because of the basic recipe that does need some changes. First, it needs butter and also too much cream of tartar which makes cakes dry. Going to play with this because I do like the ingredients.
