RE: Has anyone ever made a tasty homemade fruitcake
My aunt used to make a fruitcake that was actually good. I personally think that it gets a bum rap because too many people don't understand how to properly bake.

I wouldn't look to Rachel Ray for anything baking related. She's admitted far too many times that she doesn't bake (unless it's some crappy casserole).

But who knows, I gave up on food network when it was revealed that one "chef" was a fucking liar and what did the network do? Gave the fucker more shows. Bad, bad tv.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

One must be "Nutty as a fruitcake" to like fruitcake. Wink

I didn't know RR wasn't a good baker. I've only made some of her dinner recipes, which were pretty good.

I don't bake or cook much, so I can't speak from personal experience, but you might try Alton Brown's Free Range Fruitcake recipe, which is on the Food Network site, or Ina Garten's Fruitcake Cookies.

I love fruitcake.

She's a cook, and I have read that a lot of cooks/chefs aren't great bakers because baking is so different. However, I would bet that, as she has a brand to protect, any recipe with RR's name on it has been tested and works and isn't too hard to make.

RE: Has anyone ever made a tasty homemade fruitcake
What's the problem with the taste in the ones you make? I mean, is it something hard to make or do you not like th ingredients? (silly questions, but we have no fruitcakes in Greece)

And why does everyone hate them?

Fruitcakes are like lawyers.

Sure, there's some good ones out there - but most people simply hate them from the get -go, just to save time..................
