Recipe by Carol

“This cake is a rich, darkish, moist fruit cake, very flavorful at Christmas. Try icing with almond paste for a additional festive contact. This recipe is started in October or November in an effort to let it mellow sooner than the holidays. I consider very properly my mother storing her fruit cake in an earlier butter churn that belonged to my grandmother and good grandmother. I would like that I had that earlier crock.”
