Zombiegirl, there are a lot of foods that are "hideous looking things with too many textures"(sounds like anything you could name with vegetables in it) What all else is on your list of foods that are hideous and have too many textures? I love fruitcake. Can't remember if it came in "c" rations. I traded off other canned stuff for that kind of stuff

Took about an hour to prepare and mix the ingredients. Recipe requires the mixture sit in the refrigerator 8 hours minimum, overnight is ok. Back for 3 hours at 250 degrees. We mixed it Monday night, baked it Tuesday night.

I thought it had to 'ferment' for a week or two before you eat it. I think you can eat it sooner but I thought you poured rum over it for several days and let it "age".

I am to impatient to wait that long. No booze in my fruitcake. A glass of Maker's & water on the side is cool, though.
