This is the recipe my husband asks for every Christmas. I often change the fruit and nuts, making sure there are always 4 pounds of fruit and 3 pounds of nuts. This recipe makes 3 very large, heavy fruitcakes, so it's good for sharing. Our favorite combination is 1.5 pounds glace fruit (cherries & pineapple), 2.5 pounds mixed dried fruit (berries, golden raisins, apricots, mango, prunes, dates, papaya), 3 pounds nuts equal proportions brazil nuts, almonds, walnuts, and cashews. We follow the cake ingredients and instructions exactly as written.
