I have no objection to eating prunes (I love them actually), but I think I will stick to my Great-Grandmother's true White Fruit Cake.

Thumbs up

LPB -

I hope you don't mind - but I took your recipe and another recipe that looked good, and I combined the two. I reduced the vanilla to 1 tsp, and added 1 tsp of lemon extract. I kept the butter, sugar, baking powder, salt, and flour the same ( I liked the combo of the cake and ap flour), but I added an extra egg. I cut down on the fruit, so I could add 3 cups of nuts (combo of whole pecans and walnuts, and chopped pecans). I totally forgot about the sultanas.. (OOPS). The resulting fruitcake was very yummy, and very close to the texture that I was hoping for. If it works, I'm enclosing a picture of one of the loaves. I made one standard and 3 small loaves. They don't rise much, so next time I know I can put more in the pan. Also, I cooked them at 300, for 2 1/2 hours for the large loaf, and 1 1/2 hours for the small ones. And just for the heckofit - I took one small loaf, wrapped it in cheesecloth, and wet it with brandy - just to see what happens. I'll let you know in a month.

All in all it turned out very well. It's my first ever fruitcake! So -now the question - since I combined the recipes, can I give it a new name?

Thanks LPB and Thanks to all who responded! I love this board!
