I caught Emeril's show yesterday, and he made a fruitcake that actually sounded good. Lots of nuts (almonds, hazel, and pecan) and some dried fruit he soaked in fruit juice and brandy, and an interesting recipe for the cake. When the cake was done, he poked holes on it an poured more brandy over it and said let it sit until all absorbed. This has to be one of two things.....the best darn fruitcake or an terrible waste of brandy.

EDIT: I went to the FTV website and it is Mini Creole Chtristmas Fruitcakes with Whiskey Sauce (I got in on the tail end of the recipe so made a calculated guess on teh ingredients). He used blueberries, cranberries, cherries, raisins and apricots and soaked them in simple syrup. He also put Grand Marnier in the batter. I just may have found one I like. Check it out. It is too long for me to add here.
