Fruitcake: The Most Revered and Reviled Holiday Treat

Leave a comment

Love it or hate it, fruitcake is a holiday staple. I’m not one for the overly dense, mass-produced fruitcakes with the waxy neon red and green “fruit” inside, but I do enjoy a nice homemade fruitcake that contains real dried fruit. Mrs. Claus has few recipes in her Cookbook, such as Applesauce Fruitcake, Old Fashioned Light Fruitcake, and Mini Christmas Puddings. For more information about this famous [or perhaps infamous] holiday treat, along with some fruitcake fun facts, check out the infographic below!

The closer it gets to Christmas, the more I think about all the yummy foods I’ll be eating this holiday season. Surely I’m not the only one who is salivating over such thoughts, right? 😉 I’m particularly excited to try out a few new recipes, such as the yule log.
