Fruitcakes are a staple for Christmas and most of the elderly love this cake. Just like kids gaga for milo. Uncles and aunties will go gaga on this cake. It is because this cake has so much complexity, the fruits, the texture, the taste, the aroma of the butter with the sweet scent from the dried mixed fruits. It just slaps. Typically fruitcakes contain a long list of ingredients but please do not be intimidated with the ingredient because most of it is just for the taste of the cake and not involving the cake body and texture. So if you want to remove some of the fruits that you dislike you can play around with the ratio.
