I First tried this recipe from an Ideals Christmas book that was given out by a bank many years ago. Its better than any pound cake you could think of making.
The Fruits -N-Nuts in the batter, Makes this so unusual. I get requests for "that bread" you make at Christmas time as no one remembers the name.
Tips: I have pierced the tops and drizzled this with brandy, when I choose not to make the Glaze, or Have used an egg-nog glaze drizzled over this. we really enjoy this cake better than cookies sometimes.
