My mother came up with this wonderful fruit cake recipe. I think having the applesauce cake base and all of the nuts in it really makes it good to eat. It is so full of nuts and fruit that it does tend to be a little crumbly, but I have had people who don't like fruit cake try it and actually enjoy it. This recipe makes several small loaves. We give it to family and friends.
