I must be the pickest cake eater around ! It must be moist, and I mean moist, I don't do dry cakes. And this yummy cake fits the bill. It was given to me by a neighbor years ago when she baked me one for Christmas. I admit to eating over half the cake, well it was warm, in one sitting. Okay, actually I was standing at my sink, (don't tell anyone)! This cake does call for candied fruit, which I THOUGHT I didn't like. Well I was wrong, give this a try, you will not be disappointed. Even though this is really a cake, she baked it in a bread pan. Perfection
