Christmas Fruitcake

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
This may be a premature rating since the cake is just now coming out of the oven. It had to bake at least another 15-20 minutes for the toothpick to come out clean. Maybe this was due to liquid from the soaking fruit which I put in since the recipe did not say to drain. There is also a discrepancy for the aging with it showing Ready in 11 Days on the printout, but it shows 70 days on the screen one place and 11 days another place, then the directions say store at least 10 weeks! Really? I used some different dried fruit including pineapple, cherries and a fruit and peel mix which is the combo my mother used for hers. The final test will be for taste which will be when we try it in a couple of weeks.

Chocolate Cherry Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2014
My mother-in-law made this cake and it was delicious. Quite rich and moist with the cherries and flavorful with the almond extract. The frosting is heavy and I may leave this off or at least cut back on the amount. I like the idea of making it in a Bundt pan.
