Great way to enjoy fruitcake during the holidays - so much better than anything I've had from the store. I added my favorite dried fruit and skipped the currants.

I absolutely love this recipe. The first time I made it, I followed the recipe, except I used dried cherries in the place of raisins and walnuts in the place of pistachios. The second time I made this, I soaked the fruit in the rum. I must say, I liked the second way best. The cake is very most and the recipe is easy.

Just a question: Could I use apple or orange juice to replace the rum in this cake without altering the taste of it too much? Any comments will be appreciated. Thanks

Very good! I made this for my mother as an alternative to the typical fruitcake, and she loved it. Only difference I made was to use walnuts instead of pistachios. It's going to become a new Christmas tradition.
