Light as a feather and full of flavor, this fruitcake from Nancy Adams of Las Vegas, Nevada makes a delectable treat to take to a potluck or to give to a friend. "Folks who taste a slice always request the recipe," she smiles.
One of my fondest memories as a child was the scent of this cake cooling on my mom’s dining room table. For those who like dates, nuts and oranges, it is heavenly. Teresa Switzer, Fayetteville, Georgia
