"This cake should be made at least two weeks ahead to allow the flavors to blend. Hint: I cheat and use the date pieces coated with sugar (instead of regular pitted dates), just taking off most of the sugar by rubbing them in my hands."

This came out great and was a hit with our guest! I used 2 tablespoons of flour to coat the fruit, as I'm used to making the traditional Texas Pecan Cake and knew it needed to be coated in flour a bit more to give a good mixing.

For those of you who love fruit cake, this is quick and easy and moist! Very dense with sweet fruit. Everyone who loves fruit cake in my family loved it this Christmas! It's a keeper.
