Also, if you stir the nuts and fruit into the sifted flour and baking powder, it will help separate the sticky fruit into isolated bits instead of glommed together chunks.
You go, girl! My grandma's recipes are like a mystery novel....you have to figure out how to get done! At least we know that this recipe is a cake, unlike "Hairdressers"!

light fruit cake, other, recipe

ISO fruitcake recipe In the 1960s I had a recipe for a light fruit cake that had no citrus but it did have raisens, dates,figs,and lots of nuts. I don't know how but I think someone was looking for the same recipe and a post from "chef June" said she had it and would post it. Please post it again so I can have it. I used to give them away at christmas time and everyone loved them. I have moved several times and lost it. I think that I originally found it in the Detroit News newspaper. Again Please and Thankyou. The Old Crock:mellow: 3 stars 1 reviews
