Colorful bits of candied fruit peek out from every sweet slice of this traditional recipe that's been in my family for generations. Mom would enlist me and my sister to drizzle the loaves with icing.—Ellen Teter, Arapahoe, Nebraska
We live in a little community of 27—if everyone's home! A neighbor game this recipe when we first moved here, saying it dated back to the 1800"s and everybody in the area made it. I soon discovered why when I took a taste...and I'm not a fruit cake fan!
