Mini Magic Fruitcakes

Pat Duran


This recipe is very vintage around 1960 from the Bordens cookbook. You can add and subtract ingredients to suit your taste..but this recipe is very tasty- this recipe is from my Aunt Martha's recipe book given to me by her daughter, Margret Ann, my cousin, who herself is an excellent baker- she makes the best Springerles.
