Fabulous Holiday Fruitcake (from Susan Purdys Have Your Cake and Eat it Too) "This recipe is your special reward for buying this book. You will thank me, I promise. This is a fruitcake you can, and will, love. You will make it, serve it, and eat it with pleasure. This fruit- cake never has been or will be, recycled, used to fill a pothole, used to pound nails, used as an anchor. The recipe, rather than the fruitcake itself, will become a heirloom you will pass to your child as I have to mind. There are two secret ingredients here: the cake and the fruit. A moist, lightly spiced applesauce cake with a fine, flavorful crumb binds a cornucopia of naturally sweet (not candied) dried fruits. Not a red or green one in the lot. Just natural, organic, dried fruits from the natural food store or fine grocery cut up with kitchen shears or chopped with a knife. Try apples, apricots, pears, peaches, pineapple, prunes, dates, black and golden raisins, and currants. Not creative enough? Add dried mango or papaya, or dried cherries, cranberries, or blueberries. Candied pineapple is neither medicinal nor chemical in taste; it is the one holdover that I occasionally use. I have avoided nuts because they are so high in fat, and with the great variety of ingredients, I dont miss them. If you wish, you can use halved nuts to garnish the cake top along with the Vanilla Icing Glaze. A perfect Christmas gift cake, this makes one-stop shopping: You get eight small loaves with this recipe. Dont be put off by the long list of ingredients; fruitcake is supposed to have a lot of stuff in it." Yield: Makes 14 cups of batter; 8 small loaves (5 1/2 x 3 x 2 1/8), 8 continued in part 2
