I don’t eat fruitcake myself, but I get a lot of requests from friends and customers to bake them some as gifts for X’mas. As they want a rather rich fruit cake, I didn’t use Rose’ recipe. My recipe is from the Epicurious website - called Grand Marnier Choc-Pecan-Orange Fruitcake I think. As pecans are expensive here, I use walnuts instead. The recipe is fantastic - sort of a very moist fruity choc brownie, and the GM makes it a little fancier than rum or brandy! My customers and friends just love it!
This year, I baked it in a mini snowflake bundt tin from Wilton - it is very beautiful and just the right size as a little gift (abt 5” diameter). 1 recipe yields 8 pieces - so it does go a long way! I boxed them in gold with organza ribbons and bauble trimmings, plus my handmade embossed gift tag. Makes a fantastic one-of-a-kind gift!
