Fruitcake has gotten a bad wrap. Jokes has been made about getting one.

George Washington was once told his men was out of ammunition. What should they do?

He said" You have fruitcake, put it to good use."

And many of British was kill that day by fruitcake!(True story)

This is a good fruitcake, it will not kill anyone!

I baked this fruitcake today and it was the easiest fruitcake I have ever made and tasted as good or better than the one I have made for years.
I plan to get more ingredients and bake another one tomorrow. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe with us here at Bakespace.
