Fruitcake is one of those traditional holiday foods. It’s heavy, dense, and has those funny green bits in it. You can buy it everywhere. But who really buys it? And who really likes it?
Seriously. No mystery green bits. No rum-soaked anything. (Although I’m sure it would be wonderful if you used 1/2 cup rum instead of the water.) No heavier-than-it-should-be cake. This is a spice-type cake that has more fruit and nuts than cake! There’s something yummy in every bite!
