I found this last year, and made my first fruit cake a few weeks ago! It smells delicious! As it's my first time and it's been almost a month since I baked it, how do I serve it? Do you want it to have been recently brushed with rum when you serve it? Or to let it dry out a bit?

Thanks!

mmmmmm, I have my fruitcake setting in the fridge soaking in rum right now, I will be making my alcohol free one tomorrow. I am nuts for fruitcake...maybe that has something to do with my blog name, maybe.

Fruitcake just came across my mind today for one of my christmas bakes and there I saw your post! :)

Hi Amber-Great idea. I'll email you.

Hi Lynn-How exciting!I hope you share about them with the rest of us.

Hi Rose- Why, thank you. I've never made it before so I hope it tastes good, too!

Hi Carolena- Welcome to UtHC!! This recipe should double well, just use two pans, don't try to make one really big fruitcake.

Hi Valli- I hope so. Can't wait for that first slice.

Hi Deb-And that day is getting closer and closer. It's practically December already!

Hi David- Ah, you can relate, and with a fruitcake as amazing as yours, it's a wonder you can resist.

Hi Venusia-No problem, I was able to trace the link just fine. Thank you so much for that! I like it chewy, too.

2007-11-27T13:35:00.000-05:00

Aimee, I said I would send you a panforte recipe in your last fruitcake post and never did. I tried many recipes and finally found one that gave me good results. Here is the link I adapt my recipe from: http://italianfood.about.com/library/weekly/aa120397.htm
The only change I made is I cook the syrup until the soft ball stage only, as I prefer a chewier texture. I prefer the Margherita to the Nero, and I assure you, it's ready to eat right away, although it also ages nicely.

2007-11-27T12:07:00.000-05:00

I have to say, I'm struggling to resist my 4 week old cake. Every time I open the cupboard where it is hiding I get a hit of Xmas magic! Roll on the 25th....

Cheers
David

2007-11-27T10:42:00.000-05:00

Aimee, I am enjoying seeing your fruitcake come to life! Nice job and looking forward to the big day you post a hardy slice of it! I can smell it now!

By the time Christymas rolls around in 28 days your fruitcakes will cut like butter Aimee!!

This cake sounds fabulous. any tips on doubling or tripling the recipe? i'd like to give it as gifts this christmas.

2007-11-26T15:48:00.000-05:00

Ohhhh Aimee, that is just a goegeous looking fruitcake. Fruitcake has this bad reputation of being too dry, too heavy or just "hated" by some. But your, yours is just lovely. And you added brazilian nuts. Now we're talking!

2007-11-26T14:21:00.000-05:00

Your fruitcake looks beautiful. I was inspired to make my first-ever fruitcake this year. They are resting happily in their boozy blankets.

2007-11-26T13:45:00.000-05:00

I was just feeding Acadia her mashed banana as I read your blog, and was wishing I had some of that fruitcake to nibble on! I too detest the marachino cherry type of fruitcakes, ugh.
So...if you wanted to share some of your tasty treats with your favorite missionaries in Guatemala, April will be coming here on the 22nd of December - and we'd love to sample some of your creations we've been drooling over on your blog these past months:)
Although the airport officials might snag them from April at customs (for themselves!) if they get a whiff of the goodies...:)

2007-11-26T13:16:00.000-05:00

Hi Anh- yes, busy, busy, but it's nice to have something like fruitcake to give away at Christmas.

Hi Deborah- I am hoping to tempt a few non-fruitcake fans with these recipes.We'll see...

Hi Nora- It's great to have grandparents to make their tried and true fruitcake, but you'll have to start sometime, right? :)

Hi Danny- Oh, so that's why the rum is disappearing so fast!

Hi Amanda- Thanks for reminding my hubby, it can't hurt!

Hi Patricia- Why, thank you! it's cheery, isn't it?

Hi Mandy- Hee hee. Now you know what to ask for for Christmas!

2007-11-26T12:28:00.000-05:00

Aimee, I can almost smell the wonderful aroma of your friutcake. I want a piece now. Oh, and I also want the apron. :D

2007-11-26T07:53:00.000-05:00

What a beautiful fruitcake, Aimée!

And I'm in love with your apron...

2007-11-25T18:42:00.000-05:00

So tempting... think I will have to give it a miss though. Mum's bringing a cake. I thought I'd make a much lighter one in the shape of an igloo. I do admire you making your own and then keeping up the ritual of feeding it booze. Sounds delicious!

To Aimee's hubby - you're one lucky man, but I'm sure you already know that.

2007-11-25T14:55:00.000-05:00

I'd just like to say that I had a strong blanket dislike (hate??) for all fruitcake before I met Aimee. When I had some at her parent's place, I became a convert. I now only hate the jellied fruit kind. Or maybe it's that I like the rum and brandy during the weekly dousings...

2007-11-25T14:46:00.000-05:00

Oh Aimée, you are really twisting my arm here. I think I may just have to start my own fruit cake project. I relied on my mom when I was in Singapore and now in Sydney, my partner's grandma makes our fruitcakes. But I now feel a strong itch to make my own, especially since you promised that making this this cake will perfumes the whole house! I love the combination of fruits you used. Thanks for the recipe, I better start working on this baby before it's too late. ;-)

2007-11-25T12:47:00.000-05:00

This definitely sounds like a better fruitcake than the ones will all the jellied fruits. I have never made fruitcake before, but this one sounds so tempting!

Aimee, I see you have been busy preparing for Christmas! This looks and sounds like a wonderful fruitcake!
