    Fruitcake

    I must be the only person that likes fruitcake. Where is the best place to buy one? I had the name of a bakery in Sacramento, Ca on my computer but it died, and now have no idea how to locate that bakery.

    I love fruitcake! My favourite is a blond fruitcake that my mother used to make at Christmas time.

    I have made the white fruit cake recipe found every year the day after Thanksgiving in The Tampa Tribune. It is called Mrs. Harvey's fruit cake. I have all the ingred, purchased, and will make it this week. It does not have any booze in it, however, stays wonderfully fresh long long time(if it lasts that long , mine usually has to be rationed out sparingly in order to have any at Christmas.) Will post the recipe later if any one is interested...........

    Yep!!!

    the years that I don't make my dark fruitcake...I purchase theirs!! They are wonderful!! They taste like my recipe!! The Monks are so cute! (I hope that is ok to say). I love their recipe!! BUT you have to order ealy! They sell out!!

    No way would I buy a chemical-infused "fruitcake" that stores stock. Yuck! Gives fruitcake a bad name! All natural ingredients for me!

    A really long time ago, my brother sent me a totally awsome fruitcake. It was from the "Old Mission" company in Calif., so very yummy, blonde and had no citron in it.

    Only my Mom use to eat fruitcake. I never tried it and know I would not like it. I absolutely will not eat or drink anything with an alcohol anything in it.

    I never had homemade fruitcake and don't like the stuff they sell in the stores I'm sure I would love homemade as I love all the fruits that go in it

    Collin Street Bakery is the best fruitcake maker and the apricot fruitcake is the best, better than the traditional.

    I am very interested. Thank you. I have a lot of fruit cake recipes, but I use only one of them and have done for years because both the ingredients and the recipe are uncomplicated. However, it is only pretty good and I would love a make a fruit cake that is very good.

    My fruit is soaking in Evan Williams right now--I don't like fruitcake, but my husband and son-in-law do. We freeze some of the finished loaves, and they enjoy them all year. My recipe is loosely based on the one in Jeff Smith's (the Frugal Gourmet) Christmas cookbook.
    Courtesy is not optional.
