maraschino cherries, drained
I dislike all the canied cherries in fruit cake so I thoughT i would try this recipe, this is fabulous my entire family loved it, so if you dislike fruit cake, try this recipe it so awesome, I'll be making this plenty through the holiday season. thank you for such a great recipe.
I have had this recipe since the early 90's, a friends mother (could it be the same mom?) made this for Christmas & my husband & I like it so much I got the recipe from her. I have been making it almost every Christmas since. It isn't your "ususal" fruitcake. Love the nuts, the dates and maraschino cherries together. I have frozen it before for a month or so and it was even more moist than after you bake it. If you like fruitcake a little bit, I think you will like this the best. I am headed to my kitchen to make it after I finish this review. :-)
