My mil used to bake this for christmas every year and never shared the recipe! I can't say i blame her, it's an awesome recipe. She got it from a southern newspaper years ago. I made it last year after cleaning out her kitchen and finding the clipping destroyed by water damage. I found it here and made it for my husband who was so happy to see it on christmas eve. It is like a fruit cake but so much better. Thanks melly
