It's so nice when there is just a little sprinkle of snow while the fruitcakes are baking-but that never happens here. On fruitcake day, it was raining. It's been raining here since Thanksgiving. I'm soggy.
I made two kinds of fruitcake this year, my regular with candied fruit and a healthier version with just dried.
That's a lot of cakes.
Mmmmm.......the house smelled so good during the long bake time.
I thought I had added too much fruit, dried or otherwise, this year but the samples say I did it just right. They were delish. I practically ate a dozen of them all by myself.
This year I glazed them with a mixture of golden syrup and brandy. Best year ever I'm thinking.
