Sometime in the past 2 or 3 years I did a post about or two about my love of the much maligned fruitcake. I grew up eating them, the wonderful concoctions of dried and candied fruits and nuts, with just enough spice cake to hold it all together. Not the light cakey cake most people think of, when they think of cake, but something special. Rating a fruitcake with the standard of a birthday cake, is like rating a hamburger by the standards for a steak.
Dave over at Blogography read my postings on fruit cakes and sent me the lovely "Fruit Bread" pictured above from Liberty Orchards in his home town in Washington State. It is wonderful, light, a nice spice, fresher fruits, good nuts. Check out his blog, sci-fi, technology, adventure travel and Cat-erday (his cats are cool.)
Should I bake fruitcakes this fall?
