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!
My husband, who's the inventor of a three-point bale mover, and I have a grown son. I'm a crafter and collector.
These miniature loaves are chock-full of tempting fruit and nuts. The glaze makes them extra moist and tasty. They are wonderful to give as gifts and fun to serve to holiday guests.

My husband didn't care for fruitcake (which I love) - till he tasted this one.
He and I have three children. He's an avid fishermen...when others are canning fruits and vegetables, I'm busy canning and smoking salmon!

I've made this quick and easy fruitcake many times during the past several years, giving it to family and friends for Christmas gifts. I also gave one to my doctor, and he claims it's the best fruitcake he's ever tasted.
Meet the Cook: Even people who normally won't eat fruitcake enjoy these, I've found.
We are retired (my husband and I have two grown daughters). I've been cooking for 50 years...and my mother, who's 83, thinks nothing of baking 8 dozen cinnamon rolls, custard pies and raisin bread all on the same day!—Libby Over, Phillipsburg, Ohio
