Directions

  1. Toss the candied orange peel, walnuts, and raisins with 2 tablespoons flour. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the butter or margarine with the sugar and honey. Beat in the egg, then the cream or milk, rum, and vanilla. Stir together the remaining 1 1/2 cups flour and the baking powder; beat into the creamed mixture. Stir in the fruits and nuts. Turn the batter into a greased and floured 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.
  3. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 10 minutes. Lower the heat to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Bake the cake 45 minutes longer, or until it tests done with a toothpick. Transfer to a rack to cool.

I made this one for my husband who loves fruitcake. It was moist, buttery with a nice proportion of fruit to cake. It was a big hit!

This is definitely our kind of cake because we do like all the fruits. This also keeps well (wrapped in foil) - can also drizzle some rum over the top after it is baked. I did make one change and that was to subsitute corn syrup for honey (no honey lovers here) which works fine. Highly recommend this little fruit cake.

Good flavor, but very dry.
