If you prefer a fruitcake that is more cake and less fruit, this is the perfect cake. It's moist and can be made ahead if desired. I use 5 mini breadpans for mine and it bakes in about 45 minutes. If you lay a piece of parchment in the bottom of the pan and spray with non-stick spray, cleaning up the pan is a breeze.
Addendum to my review (12/28/07) The last few years, instead of using the candied fruits, I have used mixed dried fruits - apricots, dried cranberries, pineapple, apple, etc. and some candied cherries for color. It isn't a lot less calories, but it is at least a little healthier and we like it a lot that way. Just use scissors to snip the fruit into small pieces; dip the scissors in flour in periodically to keep the fruit from sticking.
