About this recipe: This fruit cake contains no eggs, butter or milk, but don't this put you off from trying it out. It's moist, warmly spiced and incredibly fruity.
Grandma taught me how to make this cake from a very young age, she wanted me to appreciate how treats don't have to be over the top or need special ingredients. She used oleo (margerine) instead of bacon grease and she also added a teaspoon of nutmeg. Whenever I make this, I feel like I'm in the kitchen with Grandma all over again. This makes great muffins. - 09 Oct 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My family makes this with shortening and bakes it in a bundt style pan. Then we serve it with caramel icing. My mom still makes it for my birthdays. Thanks for sharing. - 19 Sep 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My Mother made this for years. She called it "Poor man's fruitcake". Thank you for posting this and letting me carry on a family tradition at Christmas. - 21 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
