Moma B's Fruitcake

This is my husband's mom's recipe and has been in the family as long as he can remember. She gave it to all her children and I have been making it every Christmas since our marriage in 1957. It is a very simple recipe and is well worth the baking time.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
