Krissy's Monday Morning Question (on Thursday)

Monday Morning Question (Comin' at ya on Thursday Morning)

Monday Morning Question: FROM:

Fruitcake.  Doorstop or delicious?

Well Krissy, this is an easy one for me.  I do like fruit cake, that is some fruit cake.  I find that the fruit cake soaked in rum or brandy is too bitter and that I don't care for.  Awhile back I posted my mom's fruit cake recipe and she did not use booze in her's, she used brandy flavoring.  As I write this, there are eight mini loaves of mom's fruit cake are "aging" and will be ready by Christmas.   The new book by Debbie Macomber, "There's Something About Christmas" is a story about fruitcake.  Borders Book store even served us coffee and fruit cake at the book signing.    So I guess my verdict is as follows;                                                                      1..If it's soaked in booze=doorstop                              2..If it's not=delicious

Happy Fruit Cake to all and to all a goodnight!   Linda

I soak my fruit in tea before cooking, the fruit comes out really plump and juicy. Jeannette.
