The Best Damn Fruitcake Ever via I always hear about people hating fruitcake. But the only ones I've ever had have been made by my Nanan and a few other ladies in Opelousas. And those ladies can bake, soooooooo.
Apricot Light Fruitcake - This moist, spice-less fruitcake is one of our family favorites. It is not nearly as heavily flavored as dark fruitcake. Since no spices or molasses are used this cake relies purely on the flavor of the dried fruits.
Dark fruit cake is one of my favorite Christmas traditions. Many years ago I combined the best of all the dark fruit cake recipes I could find, and this recipe is the result. The cake is rich, dark, and chock full of nuts and fruit.
