    A nice alternative for those who don't like overly fruity and very dark spicy fruitcakes. This one is light with just enough fruit and no added spices!

      Steve....This is THE recipe my grandmother made for years and years and I managed to lose my copy of. You can't imagine how thrilled I was to find that you had posted it. This is a VERY good fruitcake, not like the soaked, dark fruitcakes. This recipe was EASY to follow and made a HUGE cake baked in a tube pan. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.....I am thrilled beyond belief.
