Are you searching for a traditional fruitcake recipe for the holidays? Perhaps you'd also like to try different apple cakes, refreshing lemon cake or the upside-down pineapple cake recipes too for birthdays and special occasion. Here we have all sorts of fruity cakes.
This Christmas cake is a little different from the traditional. It calls for a variety of dried fruit and doesn't need to age. The orange juice gives a beautiful citrusy flavour. Prep time includes soaking the fruit overnight.
A good friend gave this recipe to me and you could have a competition on guessing the ingredients of this fail proof cake and no person would pick it. Truly one of the moistest cakes you could ever find. I have not iced it because we enjoy it as it is just decorating the top with almonds. I am waiting on someone to ice it so I can see how it turns out!
This is a wonderfully simple, yet delicious cake. It is so moist and fresh, it will surely be a favourite with your family, just like it is with mine! Most of the preparation time is taken up in peeling and cutting the apples. A mixture of apples works great, although I usually use Golden Delicious.
This is a lovely cake with cherries and raisins added for those of you who don't want to go to the trouble of making fruit cakes. It’s best if you can wait several days before eatings to allow the flavours to develop. This cake also freezes well.
A quick and easy "fresh" fruit cake.
