Here's a hint: Don't call it fruitcake when you serve it. People who don't think they like fruitcake will be delighted with these dipped cake squares. The cake is moisted and packed with apricots, dates, raisins and fruit.—
MY AUNT gave me this recipe and it is a wonderful fall dessert for two or more. It tastes like apple pie, yet is less time consuming to prepare. With the special touch of the butter sauce, it receives raves for taste and a delightful surprise flavor addition.
For a cake to impress, try this delicious recipe. The filling makes the cake so yummy with fresh raspberries. Your guests will be sure to be asking for the recipe.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin

My friend asked me to make her son's 5th birthday cake, and when I asked her what he wanted on it, she said, "Oh, just put on gobs and gobs of candy."

My mother has a birthday in December and I wanted to do something special. This cake is the result. Mom loved it and almost didn't want to eat it because it was so wonderful!—Diana Lopez, Kearny, New Jersey
