This was my first time making a fruit cake from a recipe, all of my other attempts have been from cake mixes plus modifications. This reciepe turned out a wonderful fruit cake. Since I was giving this fruit cake as a Christmas Gift I wanted it to be a bit special, so I made an Amaretto Fruit Cake. I used Amaretto in place of Orange juice. I also added Almonds along with the Pecans. I didn't want the cake overly sweet so I used "dried" fruit, not "candied" fruit. I'll make this again along with some additional adjustments, then I'll have an Amaretto Fruit Cake Recipe that I can post.
