I've had it on occasion and it wasn't to bad. Don't get me wrong, though. It's no Pecan Pie, but it's alright.

I can't eat it, can't get past the fruit that looks like it came from a different planet!

After baking fruitcake, it must sit for 32 years to harden. By that time all of the alcohol would evaporate out.

UGH! I tried it once. I have an issue just getting past the smell of it. My mother-in-law like it, though. But she has questionable tastes.

We have a joke in my family. When the kids were younger I told them that if they ever catch me eating a fruitcake or wearing gold shoes, it means their mother has dementia or is having a psychotic episode. So, that's their cue to render me some help.

I like Dark Fruitcake. It is moist (assuming you eat it fresh) and tasty. The light fruitcake, (as pictured by Matt Radiance) is dry and tasteless. Bring me a fresh dark fruitcake anyday!

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE baking more then anything. But before my grandparents 50th anniversary, my grandma asked me to bake a cake. So I was extremely excited to help. Then I found out it was fruit cake mushing canned, dried fruit into a bowl. When I was baking it it didn't seem that bad. But then came the anniversary and I didn't want to make my grandparents feel bad so I took a piece of fruit cake and boy oh boy. I couldn't believe I baked something so disgusting LOL.

Yes! Are you ready? I emailed him for the recipe last night here it is: I’m honored you remembered it!

by Nancy Gendron

Fruitcake is not often a very welcome gift. This is a fruitcake recipe that many declared fruitcake-haters admitted to liking, because it is not gummy or alcoholic.

•1-1/4 lb candied fruits (red & green cherries, pineapple)
•1/2 lb butter
•1-1/8 cup sugar
•5 eggs
•1/2 lb dates, cut up and seedless
•2 cups flour
•3/4 lb pecans
•1/8 cup orange juice (or grapefruit = Miami)

Preheat oven 250°F. Butter and flour two loaf pans
Whip butter until creamy and add it to sugar. Add eggs, one at a time.
Mix fruit with juice. Add fruit & other ingredients. Flour and nuts last-
Bake 2 to 2-1/2 hours. Use a toothpick moisture test to be sure it’s not too wet or too dry.

Makes two small (5x9”) loaves. Dust with pwd. sugar

I love fruitcake, but actually only those that are made without the fruits known as "nuts."

And that means I have to make my own.  I first made it about 40 years ago from a recipe I found in a cookbook and just made it without the nuts.

Rave reviews from my friends.
