Ingredients

  • 15 each—which really isn’t bad in the world of fruitcake prices. I saw a flyer recently wanting $32.99 for a small, round fruitcake. And that’s the stuff that hasn’t been soaked in enough booze to make it illegal to drive after one slice.
  • 3 tries, I think I have it right. Here’s the result:
  • 2 1/3 cups flour (divided)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ½ cup softened margarine or butter
  • 2 eggs 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 2 tsp grated orange peel
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp clove
  • ½ tsp mace
  • 1 tsp all spice
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 lb mixed candied fruit (like Fruitcake Mix from Sunripe Fruit Products of Plant City, FL)
