How To Make applesauce fruitcake

  • 1
    Mix in order. I mix by hand as it is hard to mix. But do it in order so that fruit and raisins will be coated with dry ingreidents.
  • 2
    Pour into pans but grease and flour them. You can use a bundt pan also. When giving as gifts, I use small loaf pans. (Mini) and give 1 per person.
  • 3
    Heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake 1 hour and 10 mins. Toothpick test should be slightly damp. Otherwise cake is dry.
  • 4
    Remove from pans. Cool. May brush with same as you used above, (bourbon, brandy, spiced rum, or plain rum.) lightly on all sides with a small paint brush or pastry brush. Store wrapped in plastic wrap and then heavy foil.
  • 5
    When serving, stir topping ingredients together and drissel on top. If giving as gifts, Mix topping and put enough in a snack zip lock baggie. Scotch tape to ribbon on top and put on card to snip 1 corner of baggie and drissel over cake. May also add the receipe.
