Excellent stuff. Redcliff Bakery makes a killer good one.
Just finished the last one I hoarded from last year while out hunting.
Chaw done on a chunk of it around the campfire while sipping Glenfiddich!
Wonder if you could sub out the brandy for Scotch.....

Love it. I love having it around during hunting season. I'd wrap a big chunk up and take it to the woods with me (or fishing).
Great snack

It’s pretty good. Collin Street Bakery has samples in little cups for people to try while you’re standing in line. They also make an apricot pecan cake that’s good.

I can't stand candied fruit. Cakes that are made with natural sweeteners can be pretty good but that candied fruit is pot hole filler.

LOL For some reason tonight was the night I cut into one of my small Claxton Darks I purchased 11/19.

A bit buzzy on the tongue. Maybe fermented? I've had a few thin slices so far a pronounce it most excellent. These have real fruit. MAGA

I'd backstroke up a river of schidt for a slice of my mother-in-law's fruitcake. BUT............it's a recipe that does NOT include that candied fruit garbage. It's heavy on Brazil nuts and dates some other stuff.

I don’t eat the organs out of the animals I kill, I give them to those that do though, and I don’t eat fruitcake…..like rattlesnake and other assorted vermin it is relegated to the “I’m starving and I need to survive the apocalypse” category of food hierarchy. 😁

The cooked fruitcake, not so much…

Ice box fruitcake? Ohhh yeaahhhh.

GamGam used to make it each Christmas.

Mix it up and put in back in the Nilla wafer box. Wrap in foil and put the whole brick in the freezer.
