Jaanetta, All kinds of good stuff in here along with the peel: raisins dark and light; currants; almonds; dried tart cherries; fresh apple and orange; spices; and some bourbon. It's so good. My recipe is adapted slightly from the "Dearborn Inn Fruitcake" recipe found in the early 1980s edition of the New Revised and Updated McCalls Cookbook.
Another very good recipe I saw recently was the "Golden Fruitcake" featured on the King Arthur Flour site. Please check it out and tell me what you think. I may make both!
