I Love to see Fruit Cakes at Christmas
It wouldn't be Christmas if the traditional fruit cake wasn't sitting on the dessert table. I have wonderful memories of watching my Mother mixing up fruit cakes each and every Christmas and it was magical. When I became old enough to use a knife I would help her chop up the candied fruit and pore it in the mixing bowl. She would mix up the huge batch with her hands by rolling it over and over until it was distributed evenly.
I have to say though that I don't like to eat fruit cakes made with candied fruit at all. But having said that, I still always want a fruit cake each Christmas because they hold so many great memories for me. They look so beautiful with all the red, yellow and green candied colors! giggle~
Go ahead- make some fruit cake memories for your family too! If you don't like the traditional American recipe of using candied fruit, then try one of the new recipes that use dried fruit and nuts with no candied fruits at all. There delicious! __________________________________________________________
