Another cake

My grandmother made the most wonderful fruit cakes. I have recently learned she even made them for other people to make a little extra money at Christmas. I make them now. Not every year ,but this year that is what my dad is getting for a present. He loves Big Mammas fruit cake and now that my mother doesn’t embark on the fruit cake mission it’s up to me.

The  prep is the hardest part. The pans have to be oiled and paper lined then oiled again. Years past we had to chop all the fruit but today we can buy the fruit mix ready to go. It messes up every thing in the kitchen  and takes large pans to mix in but this is the only fruit cake I eat.  It is GOOD. What is your special for Christmas?dscn1624

  1. I have never made a fruitcake. I just make a lot of different cookies. The favorite was and is the Top Hats and the Christmas cutouts.
