I made a recipe of New Orleans Fruit Cake yesterday, my first attempt at fruitcake. I made it into small six loaves. I got the recipe from my friend, Sheila. She says it is really good.
Now it has to sit for at least two weeks in an air tight container. There's a jigger of bourbon in the container with it, so it can soak it up. The fruit and nuts were soaked in bourbon before baking also.
We'll see how it turns out in a couple of weeks!
