I make this cake every xmas: one of my favs! I found recipe many yrs ago in SL Heritage Cakes, the bible of southern cakes. WM Great Cake, as it's called in SL, is a somewhat of a 'white fruitcake,' but minus the traditional fruit cake flavor. Very dense and not too sweet. I'v found it generally takes an extra 1 hr 5 mins: you'r lkg @ 3 hrs+ in oven.
