The Best Damn Fruitcake Ever via I always hear about people hating fruitcake. But the only ones I've ever had have been made by my Nanan and a few other ladies in Opelousas. And those ladies can bake, soooooooo.
Dark fruit cake is one of my favorite Christmas traditions. Many years ago I combined the best of all the dark fruit cake recipes I could find, and this recipe is the result. The cake is rich, dark, and chock full of nuts and fruit.
