This is only the third year I've made fruitcake, and this is the first time I've used this recipe. It's different than the one I've used the past 2 years; it's seems a little less heavy, for starters. I substituted apricots for the mango, golden raisins for the currents (couldn't find either of the those ingredients). I omitted the citron since I couldn't find it in the store, but I added the zest of one orange. I used spiced rum--it tastes better to me. Of course, I won't know for a couple months how this tastes, but it looked good coming out of the oven, smelled great, and the little bit I snuck off the top tasted pretty good! Give it awhile to blend flavors, YUM! Can't wait! Glad I doubled the recipe!
