"This moist loaf is the perfect choice for people who don't like the candied fruits that go into traditional fruitcake," assures Diane Hixon from her home in Niceville, Florida. "Each slice is chock-full of goodies, so they'll think that you fussed when you haven't."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 16, 2013

"I've been using this delicious recipe for years and it never fails to please even those who say they hate traditional "fruit cake." This recipe is so moist and includes favorite fruits, how could you go wrong? I stock up on the easy ingredients as the holidays approach and even bring the children from my Sunday School class over to help me make mini loaves to give as gifts. Wonderfully yummy and so easy!"
