My family never liked fruit cake, but I adjusted this recipe as indicated in ingredients to a more "Texas Style." I also use large foil cups, as the minis just weren't enough since everyone loves them and they ate several. I have been making these since my daughter was young. She is now in her 30's, and still smiles to see mom made the traditional cakes. There is little batter between the fruit. They are good, and one of our family traditions.
