Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the dates, pineapple, cherries and nuts. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; stir into fruit mixture until well coated.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk egg yolks until slightly thickened. In another bowl, beat egg whites and vanilla until stiff peaks form. With a spatula, stir a fourth of the egg whites into egg yolk mixture until no white streaks remain.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 31, 2013

I have made a recipe very similar to this for the past 25 years. People who don't like fruitcake seem to like it. I will continue to make it.

This recipe is all fruit and very little cake/binder. It is EXCELLENT. A true fruitcake lover will love this recipe! It is expensive to make, but worth every cent!

I followed the directions and it turned out to be a ball of sticky stuff. The top and sides were burning before the inside was done. Not sure what went wrong.

I think it is ridiculous to have to sign up for a subscription to look at some recipes on this site, I have been a loyal subscriber of TOH for 4 years.
