MY FAMILY doesn't care for fruitcake, but we like this modified version. It's similar to a date-nut bread and we enjoy it with the butter sauce. It's really moist and delicious. I'm glad a friend shared this recipe with me many years ago. —Mrs. C. Cunningham Astoria, New York

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 23, 2014

My favorite since a child. Make sauce with sweetened condensed milk like my mother made~watching carefully as it will boil over or burn quickly. Poke wholes in cake while hot and pour sauce over and in. Absolutely delightful!

I have made this twice so far and we enjoy it very much. The last one made two days ago was with tropical fruit. I live in Ireland and love the Cooking For Two Site. Thank you again for this wonderful recipe which I will continue to make again and again.
