My mother baked this fruitcake for many, many years. People who DESPISE traditional fruitcake LOVE this one. It's actually more of a nut cake with fruit in it to me. We like it best when sliced very thinly and cooked in a rice ring pan. It's very pretty when sliced thinly and placed on a platter. WARNING: It can be addicting!

How to Make Mother's White Fruitcake

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut pineapple and cherries into small pieces. I mix 1 lb. at a time into the flour by hand, to coat and separate. Add nuts, mixing well - by hand. You want to make sure the pieces don’t clump together. Small is good.
  2. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla, and lemon; mix well. Add fruit/nuts to batter. Mix together and spoon into greased and floured rice ring or tube pan.
  3. Bake at 300 degrees for about an hour. I use the toothpick or straw doneness test. Let cool in pan before dumping. This is best when slices are 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. The slices are pretty on a platter for a party, too.
