Icebox Fruit Cake

Cathie Valentine


I am not a lover of fruitcake, but my Mom had about 5 different recipes for fruit cake in her recipe box. They were very popular in the 60s and 70s :-) I picked the easiest one. This is not a traditional fruit cake.

1 box
raisins (not the little boxes kids eat)
1 bag(s)
frozen coconut--thawed
1 bottle
cherries (small)
1 box
graham crackers, crushed (or graham cracker crumbs)
1 can(s)
*eagle brand* sweetened condensed milk
2 lb
shelled nuts (of course pecans is nut of choice)


1Mix together and put in icebox. This is exactly how the recipe read!!

2NOTE--I would place in a cake pan (Or loaf pan) Also, this recipe called for 1 fresh coconut. I don't know about you, but I decided on the frozen route :-) I also would use a box of graham cracker crumbs instead of crushing up a box of graham crackers. This show the age of the recipe. Oh yeah, one last thing, I would chop the nuts (not too fine)
