Fruitcake done right is great. My mother used to make it around Thanksgiving. Drizzled with brandy and tin foiled and parked in the fridge until Christmas. The ageing process made it great stuff. No, it's not your everyday fare.

My mother spent her last working years as a bakery chef. Desserts were her specialty. Every Christmas she made fruit cake. Once we were all grown she put various types of alcoholic beverages in it. I loved it, but like maybe 4 bites and that was all I could do.

If I don't answer when you talk to me or about me, that's likely because I have you on ignore.  Try to PM me. It won't let you PM me if I have you on ignore. There are other people, not members, who peruse this site. I want THEM to know why I don't reply to everyone who talks to or about me.

My grandmother used to make fruitcake...I loved it. What about you, RC?
It wasn't the traditional with the colored dried fruit, but more with dates, raisins, nuts and I forget what else. I have the recipe somewhere; tried it a time or two, but as with many things we remember from childhood, it never tasted like grandma's.

I'm not preachin'....I'm just sayin'!

I honestly don't remember the grandmotherly fruitcake.  I do remember we never got anymore fried chicken after our far-thinkng father told our madre she couldn't cook it as well as his mom.  Even at an impressionable age I wuz thinking 'Oh, no, he didn't really just say that?!'
