ISO a Traditional Fruitcake Recipe

Who has a TNT fruitcake recipe they can share? Discussion on another thread got me thinking about fruitcake and it's just about time to make them for the holidays.

Share your terrific recipes here so we all can enjoy the real thing, avoiding the inferior store bought versions.

I'd start things off with my old family recipe but I don't have one. You go first.

WOW! 52 views and no responses! I guess you all really do hate fruitcake.

I have a Robin Hood Flour cook book from the early 60's. There may be one in there. All I have to do is find it.

My sister used to make a Light Fruitcake from the older BH&G cookbook, it was wonderful. I'll check mine and see if it's in the edition I have now.

I do have it, do you want me to PM it to you?
