This was a great, quick to prepare recipe. However, instead of putting it in a pan, next time I'm going to make drop cookies out of it, using a small ice cream scoop and putting on a waxed paper lined platter. My family didn't think it would taste good because it looks dreadful when done, but it went over great. It made two loaf pans full. I was able to send some home to guests. Some of my family doesn't like fruitcake, but they liked this recipe. Only a tiny bit is now left for my husband to enjoy. I, alas, have diabetes and can't eat this. It is best to let this sit in refrigerator overnight for more flavor.
I must give this recipe 5 starts for its wonderful taste. However, it sure comes out looking as something other than a loaf of fruitcake: it's gooey, and that aspect may turn some people off (like it did my husband). I think I'll try adding some more crushed Nilla wafers to it to try and firm it up more. Again, as to the taste, one can't stop eating.
This a wonderful recipe. A friend at school back in the early 1960 would bring this to school and share with me. I lost my recipe and was happy to find this recipe. Everyone in my family loves this fruitcake and has a hard time letting it mellow in the frig.
I have looked for this recipe for such a long time. My Mom used to make it. I thought it was a dream but here it is. I'm glad I found it. It's a great fruitcake.
I have looked for this recipe for years. Decided to take a chance and see if maybe someone might have a recipe using vanilla waffers. I'm elated with joy for you have solved one of my Christmas gift problems. THANKS, THANKS !!
Very quick, easy, and great tasting recipe! It's a little gooey, so instead of forming it into a lof or in a pan, I would recommend putting it in individual dishes for serving, then mayber top with a little whipped cream.
