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...........

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.

Mom made hers with peach nectar. No booze. We'd wrap them in aluminum foil and let them sit awhile. Then about January, any uneaten ones went into the refrigerator. Pull them out around Easter and they tasted like candy...oh what a treat!

Boiled fruit cake is my favourite.

About 30 years ago I gave a fruitcake to a friend who hates it (as a prank). She thought she would get me back by giving to me the following but I was ready for her with another fruitcake. Those two fruitccakes have been going back and forth for about 30 years now. It's become a tradition lol

I love fruitcake. Not the cheap ones from the store, but a good one. A friend of my DH used to bring us one from a bakery in North Carolina I think. Haven't had it in years, since we lost contact with him. I will have to try one of the ones on here.

My grandmother made one that starts with a yellow egg cake, that was crumbled then fruit was added, and the whole thing had brandy poured over it, and allowed to 'age'. Sadly, that is all I remember of the recipe.
