This is designed for people who don't like fruitcake. It is not as sweet or as dry. My husband hated fruitcake until he had mine.

This is my mother's very old recipe, at least 60 years old. My mother baked this for my wedding, and it sure is delicious and also a great Christmas cake. This is a very long recipe, but well worth the trouble. If 2 cups of butter seems too much for you, substitute shortening for 1 cup of the butter. Other fruit juices can be substituted for grape juice. You can also use 1 cup of drained maraschino cherries in place of the candied cherries. Originally submitted to CakeRecipe.com.

This is the fruitcake my mother made from the time I was a little girl. It isn't full of the citrus fruits, and I've never met anyone who didn't like it. Originally submitted to CakeRecipe.com. You can use fruit juice instead of the brandy, if you prefer.

This is a very good cake for Christmas. Do not double this recipe. You don't need to age this cake. Pineapple extract can be substituted for almond extract if you'd like your cake even more pineapple tasting! Originally submitted to CakeRecipe.com.

This recipe produces a really moist fruit cake it was given to me by my mom, and it's really easy. My mom uses it for Christmas cake by icing it. I use it for birthdays, Christmas, or just for a treat.
