Shirley's Ice Box Fruit Cake

Recipe by  

"I looked forward to having this every year when my partner's mother would come to stay with us during the holidays. She was a 'Paula Deen'-kinda woman, adding butter to everything, but everything was oh-so-delicious! May be sliced into any size serving. Keeps a good while, if your family doesn't eat it all right away!"

I make it every year!

Yum! Used cinnamon-flavored graham crackers and subbed dried fruit for cherries. Because it can be messy to mix, I crushed my graham crackers in a large plastic bag, then added dry ingredients and slowly added condensed milk (closing bag and mushing it up after each addition). Clean hands, no dishes and still turned out delish! Thanks for sharing.
