    Default Fruitcake 101

    Thought that in the holiday spirit it might be fun to share our favoite fruitcake[not a moderator] tradition,recipe or brand we prefer. I myelf prefer the old reliable Claxton brand but i'm sure many of you out there have more exotic ones that you love and hold dear. I am also not opposed to any who might want to regift an unwanted fruitcake. It doesn't even have to be this years. Thank you and I hope you all find the fruitcake you desire under your tree. HAPPY HOILDAYS TO ALL

    I used to find my favorite fruitcake under the tree.

    I am serious about my fruitcake. I LOVE IT!!! I bribe my family (they all hate it) to pretend they like it so people give them cakes and then they give them to me! It's a win-win situation!

    When I was young, my Mom made a citrusless fruitcake one year..it was basically a bunch of raisins and currants and it was delicious!! She lost the recipe or I would make it! ♥

    My mom used to make a Norwegian treat called Julekake -- Christmas cake -- which was to die for. Sometimes she would put "fruitcake fruit" in it, but the family rebelled. It was best plain, toasted, and slathered with butter. Please pass the Crestor...

    We have, over the years, saved the very few fruitcakes we've received as gifts. They seem to have a half-life of about 1,500 years. They serve well as door stops, anchors, chocks to put under the wheels of the cars to keep them from rolling away. I bet the divers could use them for weights...

    Nighty night, all...
