Still dreaming of fruitcake!
My original post is here.
I have the candied fruit in the cupboard. It's dying to come out and be baked! Since I don't plan to add any liquor to it, it should be alright to bake this close to Christmas.
I will even include the citron, because that's just the right thing to do.
(I was reminded of this old post by a commenter who recommended BB Goddards Fruitcake. It does look wonderful. Thank you.)
