Fruitcake: Love It, Hate It, Want To Blow It Up

I for one love fruitcake in any form. I love how the candied fruit and liqueur blend together, the way the fruit soaks up the rum and other tasty concoctions used. I have one ready to go in the oven, and it's soaked in rum and Drambuie and going to be soooo good. I am aware that some people hate fruitcake and consider it only fit for demon spawn, however. Which are you, a lover or a hater, and why? :burning:

Absolutely hate it! I always thought storebought fruitcake was for decoration because it was red and green. My grandmother had one in a box and every year at Christmas it was used as a doorstop to hold the door back for all the guests to enter. Guess that's why I thought it was for decoration purposes only. Never saw anyone ever EAT the stuff.

I love home made fruitcake. My mother used to make the best fruitcakes and my sister still does. She would soak the candied fruit and raisins in coffee brandy for a couple of weeks in a tightly covered container. When they were cooked and cooled, she would frost them with an almond-flavored buttercream frosting. Mmmm....

Absolutely love it, but homemade only. You can add the most amazing stuff to make it really rich and moist. A super, once yearly indulgence!

I like homemade fruitcake too. I also like the ones from The Collin Street Bakery, especially the apricot ones. They're pricy, but oh so good.

I haven't ever tasted a homemade fruitcake. The only ones I remember were the very hard yucky store bought ones. There was a cartoon in today's newspaper where the dad used the fruitcake to prop up the tree.

Hate all of it, except the one my mom makes. I can't stand candied fruit, but my mom found a recipe years ago that uses only regular dried fruits & nuts, folded into some sort of batter. It's really good and actually healthy. My DH takes it with him hunting as it gives him lots of energy and stays with him a long time. I suppose you could take any regular fruitcake recipe & substitute dried fruit (apricots, dates, prunes, what ever you like) for the candied fruit and fold in your favorite nuts.
