Everyone should make, or at least taste, fruitcake done right. This recipe is easy and surprisingly delicious, making it a great place to start. The texture here is like a fig newton mixed with a granola bar, plus sticky, chewy goodness and a delightful crunch from the nuts. The mix of spice and fruits is surprisingly sweet and perfect with a cup of coffee. As the cake sits over the next few days, brush it another time (or two) with rum and let it soak in. This helps maintain the cake’s moisture and flavor.
