    Kiwi Kathy's Note:

    This is the nicest fruit cake ever!! Incredibly moist and light. Does not need icing. I was given a few pieces in a Xmas gift and it was so addictive I asked for the recipe.

      I do love fruitcake, & this is just the kind of recipe that makes my day ~ Dried fruit & more dried fruit! Absolutely wonderful! I know some will think that fruitcakes are for the cold winter months, but that's not so! This is the kind of cake that is expressive of the joy & wonder of end-of-the-year holidays, & I like that feeling all year long! I went heavy on the dried peaches & pears & (Fuji) apples, but can well imagine this same cake made with tropical fruits, too! Thanks for sharing this keeper!
