I will freely admit that I enjoy SOME types of fruitcake quite a bit. I am attempting to make one today that is solely for my pleasure, with all the ingredients I've always wanted to make one out of. I am loosely basing it on Alton Brown's Free Range Fruitcake recipe. Care for a slice?
What is your general opinion of fruitcakes?
Great gag gifts, not to be taken seriously
Hideous waste of stuff someone might consider food
Met a few that were tolerable, might nibble a piece at a party
I rather like them.
I am searching for the perfect one which I am sure exists and the hunt is half the fun.
GIMMEEE!!! NOW!!!! Must Have!!
What do you like in a fruitcake?
Weren't you paying attention? EWWW...Nothing!!
Dried but not candied fruit
Small diced pieces
Large chunks of goodies
Heavy, Rich Spices
Care to share a secret ingredient or hint?
