About this recipe: This three layer cake is sinfully good. The cake is warmly spiced and dotted with raisins, coconut and pecans. The layers are sandwiched together with a citrussy coconut glaze.
ALMOST like the Japanese Fruitcake my grandmother made. To die for.... - 13 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have been looking for this taste for years and tried many different recipes. This is the best I have come across so far. It is spicy and not "over sweet". An excellent accompaniment to the holiday dinner after eatting so many very sweet treats during the holiday season. It is also very impressive to look at with 4 layers! I garnished the top with extra raisins, coconut, pecans and a sprinkle of all the spices in the recipe! - 28 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My mother-in-law made Japanese Fruit Cake every year for Christmas and this tastes very much like hers. My husband was very pleased. I had a lot of leftover icing so, next time, I may make 2 2-layer cakes and give one as a gift or serve one for Thanksgiving and one for Christmas. It makes a very large cake. - 26 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
