How to Make Grandmas XMas Cake (Fruit Cake)


  1. Wash and dry raisins , put in large mixing bowl
    Cut cherries in half(I use 4oz of each red and green) then add
    make sure walnuts are crushed using flat side of large knife then add
    if using peel, mix in here
    set aside
  2. In another mixing bowl
    cream butter and add sugar (beat till fluffy)
    add eggs (mix well)
    add molasses
    add prune juice
    Mix well and set aside
  3. Sift flour, baking powder, salt, and spices well ( I do this 3 times)
    Take 1 cup of flour mixture and sift over raisins, cherries and nuts.
    Add remainder to cream mix and stir.
    Add both mixing bowls together and mix well again. (easiest to do this with very clean hands)
  4. turn into an aluminum foiled greased pan
    Bake at 275F for 3 1/2 - 4 hrs
    let cool , wrap in foil and hide it from everyone
