Has anyone ever made a tasty homemade fruitcake
I know, Laugh out load tasty and fruitcake in the same sentence is insanity. I'm curious if anyone has a recipe that doesn't have those neon green thingys in them or those bizarre gummy bear fake looking globs. There has to be some sort of fruit cake that has maybe figs or dates or more natural fruits in them along with some nuts which is all cooked in rum. I mean, something like that sounds like it might be pretty good but I never see a recipe for a fruit cake like that.

So far the only good fruitcake is a dead fruitcake.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Yes, my sister makes fruitcake every year for the holidays and it's yummy. Yes

RE: Has anyone ever made a tasty homemade fruitcake
I'm not a huge fan of fruitcake. I don't do very well in the kitchen either--I am a horrible cook/baker. I really want to take some cooking classes, especially since I'm newly single and plan on dating soon. I'd like to cook dinner for a boyfriend without it tasting like cardboard. Hobo

I think your best bet in finding a good fruitcake recipe is to check rachel ray or nigella Lawson's websites. They usually have some good recipes for various things. I like rachel ray because her recipes are easy to follow and nigella's food always looks so good.

Thanks, I'll try Rachael Ray and Lawson. I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to try making a fruitcake but then again it might just be the biggest challenge since the moon landing to make a good tasting fruitcake. And I just might be up for that momentous challenge. Thumbsup......Laughat

Wonder if there are any fruitcakes with chocolate in them. Hummmm. Consider

YES! there is such a thing as a chocolate fruitcake. Problem solved. This was from Nigella's website.
