I made 9 small ones last week, good recipe from a black woman in Little Rock Ark....

most fruit cakes would make good door stops..

I pour about a shot glass of Rye whiskey on top of a small loaf pan size cake, sounds like a lot but it's just about perfect.

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.

Love fruitcake. The Grandma's brand (Beatrice?), sold through Cabelas has always been my favorite....until last month. Got the urge for one last month...dry as a brick. I imagine sales dropped during the plaque, and they sold me last years inventory. They should have written it off their taxes as a loss instead of selling it to repeat customers...good way to go out of business.

I like Collin Street Bakery fruit cakes, but everybody in the family makes fun of me for liking them. Somebody gave us a Hostess fruit cake, probably the worst fruit cake that I've ever eaten. I can see where someone who had only eaten inferior fruit cake wouldn't like it if the Hostess brand was representative of inferior fruit cakes.

Great stuff.


Used to have to sell claxtons as a Christmas fund raising project for a children's home........

In order to sell it, one needed to really stress how the proceeds went to the children's home.......

I always wound up having to buy a good bit and just give it away.......

Well I'll admit, I love it...

bet in my life, I've had more alcohol consumption from Fruitcake, than from anything down at the liquor store.

II like fruitcake.
When I lived in deep snow country I kept one stashed in the truck with my "stranded" gear. Loads of calories, long long shelf life. In the spring, I would eat it when trout fishing.
I recall seeing a piece about some monks someplace that make what is supposed to be an amazing fruitcake. Can't remember where the Monastery was.

^^^^THIS!!!^^^^

The "Deluxe Pecan Cake" was a staple in my home on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's when I was a kid.
Absolutely delicious if you're into that sort of thing.

There may be other regional favorites that are just as good, but none BETTER! Collin Street pecan cakes are shipped all over the world!

That would be their "Deluxe" Pecan Cake!
None other graced our table during holidays.

I like stollen bread. There's a local bakery that makes it, but it is pretty pricey.

Never seen or heard of proper fruitcake in the US.
1. Should be dark
2. Fruit soaked in booze, usually OP Rum for a month or so before baking
3. Mother knows best, store bought is a very long second.
Process begins late Sept or Oct and cake is ready for Christmas though it is not a seasonal cake and can be had any time.

I love fruit cake but couldn't stomach what is sold here as it is anything but.
