help! I need to get it soaking and maturing as I only have till mid spetember. I dont have experience with fruit cakes so I am quite new to that. please help! can i take any recipe and minus the candied fruits/nuts? i would have thought they added an element of sweetness to the cake to counter act the dark rich flavour? please help! thanks,
AMy grandmother used to make a fruitcake that was mostly dried currants. I always thought it was gross, but my grandfather seemed to like it.
