Here is the fruitcake recipe that I have, but it needs some help. The spices are not just right. It just doesn't taste like Grandma's. Can anybody help me out a bit, please?
Old fashioned Fruit cake
1lb whole pecans
½ lb candied cherries
5 whole eggs, beaten till fluffy
1 c. plus 1 tbsp. plain flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla
¼ - ½ c. brandy or orange juice
Mix dry ingredients and sift over fruit and nuts: pour beaten eggs over. Add vanilla and mix well.
Pour into greased pans and bake in low oven (no more than 300) for 1 ½ hrs. Let stand a week or more before cutting. (it is best to let stand 30 days or more)
* brandy or orange juice should be added after all ingredients have been mixed before baking.
Note: Add ½ tsp allspice, ½ tsp nutmeg, ½ tsp cinnamon to dry ingredients.
Try adding a 1/2 cup of powdered Honey nut Cheerios to any chocolate chip cookie recipe.
A VERY Happy Anniversary to you!!!!
