Fruitcake – 2011

I have been making fruitcake using the recipe in my mother’s “Woman’s Home Companion Cook Book” for decades. I like my homemade fruitcake but can’t say the same for the blah stuff from the grocery store. This year’s fruitcakes are still soaking up the brandy.  I will finish making them as soon as I get over this horrible cough I’ve come down with.  To see last year’s photo of me up to my elbows in candied fruit and nuts, go to Yay For Fruitcake!

  1. Haha – I just posted two comments on your old post "Yay for Fruitcake" and one was about the weirdness of the dates…didn't even see that the year was off! Sigh.
    I need some fruitcake.
