Recipe by Jackie Harris
"This is a recipe I made up in 1979. I wanted to make something quick and easy. Took me quite a few tries before it turned out though. I entered it in the county fair and took first place plus the gold ribbon which entitled me to enter the State Fair. So I entered the State Fair and came in second. I was told that if I had told the judges it was an original recipe, I would have taken first place. This was the very first time I had ever entered anything like this before, for both fairs and I guess you could say I was wet behind the ears. Oh well, I sure did have fun."

I made your fruitcake Mrs. Harris and it was fantastic. So easy and very moist. Not to sweet and the cream cheese frosting set it off perfectly. I would give this recipe a 10 if I could!
