RECIPE BACKSTORY
If you have been searching for the easiest fruit cake recipe on the planet – search no longer. I have found it! I clipped this recipe from a magazine about 10 years ago, and stupidly never made it. But fate intervened, championing this recipe’s potential, as it fell out of my ancient recipe file while I was desperately searching for my grandmother’s cinnamon smoothie milk shake recipe. I almost hurriedly threw it away, only to discover, as I gave it a quick glance, that I just might hold the golden fruit cake ticket. Well, for those of us with no time! I am not going to mislead all of you fruit cake aficionados. This is not the most moist, flavor-filled fruit cake in the gluten-free world. However, it is pretty good if you want to whip up a tea cake with no time and very little ingredients! Serve it slathered with some butter or vegan spread and devour. YUM!
