Default Fruitcake

I probably shouldn't admit this because I'll probably lose friends over this or possibly even be banned but I like fruitcake. The more expensive, the better it tastes but to quell a craving, I'll nibble on a cheap one. The pricey ones have rum in them, the cheaper ones don't and the taste difference is very obvious. I've considered attempting to make a fruitcake from scratch but it's a pretty long process that I'm just not willing to tackle. And if I screw it up, it's an expensive mistake.

So, here we go...........

It's good stuff. "A variety of interesting textures with bursts of many flavours". Does that make it any better for you? LOL

Now I want to post a fruitcake recipe on your cooking page.

Well, I didn't say I was going to make one. To make a real fruitcake, not a cheapy one, takes several weeks. I'm too lazy.

My Dad used to make great fruitcakes, when he was alive, actually thinking I might try my hand making one if I can find his recipe.
