it's a very simple recipe: 1 lb of flour, 1 lb of eggs, 1 lb of butter and usually 1 lb of sugar but i cut it down to 1/2. cream butter and sugar, add eggs, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/4 tsp salt, mix in flour. add 3.5 lbs of any mix of dried and candied fruit you want, any cut. add 1 lb of any nut you want, mix thoroughly, bake in 325˚F oven until done (depending on size anywhere from 35 minutes for muffins to 2 hours for giant bricks).

    hi bert! merry christmas to you and your family as well!

    miss saffy, aren't they lovely? they are a little pricey, but nice for the holidays. i bought them here, i think they ship to you. if not, they are a french product, i'm sure someone more local has them in stock. (i think i still have the label somewhere, i'll look around)

    I love fruit cake! I don't know why people whine and moan about always receiving boxes of fruitcake during the holidays.

    I had some pretty awesome fruitcake the other day too, but from Germany. :9 It had 12% almond paste and it tasted heavenly. Have you ever tried one of those?? :)

    hi joey, happy holidays! i haven't had a fruitcake like that, but it sounds deeelish. i love stollen, esp if there's almond paste in it, i'm sure i'd like that.
