Holiday Fruitcake

This is the time of year I start seeing Holiday Fruitcakes out in the stores and they make me think of my late mother. Not that I don’t think of her everyday but, my mother had a holiday fruitcake recipe she loved to bake (and eat) around the holidays, called Holiday Jewels. They were shaped like bonbons. She was quite the baker, one of many talents she had. Even though I didn’t particularly like holiday fruitcake, I looked forward to having one of those Jewels right out of the oven every year.

If you love fruitcake and want a different way to make it, this is a great recipe. My mother would be mortified if she knew I was posting her original hand typed recipe, typo’s and all, for the public to see!


Judy DeLuca’s latest novel

Towel Dry and a Good Cry is about a young girl, new to the hairdressing business, that learns all too quick that there is more to standing behind the chair than just cutting hair.  A story full of laughs and tears lies and fears with characters you’ll love, hate or will leave your jaw hanging open!
