Mawmaw's Ice Box Fruitcake
I had never enjoyed fruitcake because it was dry. From the first bite I loved this one. It was moist and had the kind of fruit and nuts I loved.
My mother-in-law passed away over 20 years ago unexpectedly and I had failed to get this recipe from her.
After having searched for years for this recipe, I recently received it from a friend who had found it in a church cookbook!
I was so excited! I have made 8 - 10 cakes over the months since I got the recipe.
The first time I made this and served it to my husband, he was thrilled to pieces! This was his mama's fruitcake. He could not believe I had finally found the recipe.
This cake freezes well. And is easy to cut when frozen.
I hope you enjoy this as much as my family does.
