Hate Fruitcake? Here’s a Yummy Alternative.

I am NOT a fan of fruitcake, never have been, never will be. 😉

But this time of year, it is nice to have some fruit loaves on hand for guests, especially when they stop by  unexpectedly. Loaves can be stored wrapped in the fridge (some also freeze well) for at least a couple of weeks, without losing flavour or their texture being affected.

This loaf is from my cookbook: Cranberry Mandarin Christmas Loaf  and it’s been a popular recipe since: Not Just for Vegetarians first came out. Lush with fresh cranberries, pecans or walnuts and mandarin orange juice and zest. And not too sweet either, just right!

Not only does it taste delish but the aroma when it’s baking just says Christmas!

I hope you enjoy the recipe soon.

Happy Baking and Happy Holidays. 🙂

  4. Hi Joe, I’m glad we’re in agreement on this important topic. It could be a dealbreaker LOL. 😉

    Hi Lorraine, LOL, the only thing I can think that would be worse than fruitcake is fruitcake with margerine spread on it. You made me smile friend.

    Hi Cathy, Oh how interesting. Well I’m glad your kids buy you what you want and there no sharing required. 😉

    Happy Holidays, G
