This will be the third year in a row my father has asked for a fruitcake and the last recipe I will try as this was the best so far. I doubled the recipe and it made 3 small bread loaf (6X3) pans. The changes I made were mostly associated with the fruit choices and alcohol. We don't drink alcohol so I soaked the fruits in orange juice. I HONESTLY think any fruit will work, so I chose dried apricots, prunes, a few raisins and cut up frozen cherries. Instead of the citron (gross) I simply used grated orange peel and grated lemon peel. I also soaked those in the juice so they would soften. It has cooled down enough to try and it is moist with a nice flavor with the fruit adding a bit of sweetness. I don't plan on letting it sit much longer. We will eat ours and I will store my dad's in the fridge until Christmas next week.
