Dark Fruit Cake


This Dark Fruit Cake recipe was made back in 2012 by me, to which today I have revisited the blog posting and photos associated with the day of making the cake.   The blog posting of the recipe can be located herewith.  Click here

Here is a quote from the author of the Cookbook, The Fannie Farmer Cookbook Twelfth Edition “Every kitchen file should have a recipe for a distinguished dark fruit cake.  This is a good as any to be found.”

This cake could also be called Brandied Fruit Cake by “Soak two large pieces of cheesecloth in brandy.  Wrap each fruit cake in the cheesecloth, covering all sides, then wrap well in foil.  Moisten the cheesecloth with additional brandy every few days for about a week.  The brandy will flavor the cake and help preserve it too.”
