About this recipe: This easy dessert is a quick to throw together and everyone will love it. The cake is made with melted marshmallows, cream, biscuit crumbs, glace cherries, crystallised pineapple, dates, pecans and flavoured with orange zest and sherry.
I had asked a "friend" for her fruitcake recipe. She wouldn't give it to me because it was an "old family" recipe. I decided to try this recipe because I have a chocolate pie recipe that begins with milk & marshmallows. This is a truly easy recipe, just chop-chop. I roasted my own pecans used the lemon juice instead of sherry. It has a wonderful subtle orange flavor & we love it! In fact, I like it better than the "old family" recipe. Even people who don't particularly care for fruit cake, love this one. GREAT RECIPE! - 01 Jan 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
