Eliminate all of that preparation, waiting and soaking time from a classic fruit cake recipe and you have what is known as 'French fruit cake'. All the yumminess of the traditional Christmas loaf laden with candied peel, fruit, nut and rum - but without the wait!
I made this one for my husband who loves fruitcake. It was moist, buttery with a nice proportion of fruit to cake. It was a big hit! - 31 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is definitely our kind of cake because we do like all the fruits. This also keeps well (wrapped in foil) - can also drizzle some rum over the top after it is baked. I did make one change and that was to subsitute corn syrup for honey (no honey lovers here) which works fine. Highly recommend this little fruit cake. - 30 Oct 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Good flavor, but very dry. - 29 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
