"This is a very good cake for Christmas. Do not double this recipe. You don't need to age this cake."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

red candied cherries
candied mixed fruit peel
1 (15 ounce) can
crushed pineapple with juice
This is a very tasty fruitcake (yes, it is possible to have one of those!).
Feel free to change the fruits to anything your heart desires, just keeping to the amounts listed. I would make this again, but exchange the candied cherries and mixed fruit peel for dried cranberries and currants (for example).
The pineapple is a completely new twist on the classic (heavy and in my opinion bland) fruitcake. This pineapple cake has a lighter flavor and is slightly less filing as well. The only part of the recipe I did not understand was the warning not to double the recipe. If done correctly, the cake does fine doubled, trippled, or even quadrupled! :) If you plan on baking for a crowd, don't turn down this recipe because of the false information. This cake tastes great no matter what!
