Oooooo Dusty, now that gets a big ol YUMMOOOOOO from puppy, mmmmmmmmm.Yah know, because I live in the great metropolis of To . We have a lot of West Indians here and man if you want to taste their fruitcake it will knock your socks off .
First they grind the fruits and soakthem in rum for almost a year and then they bake it at Christmas and it is almost black in colour and very rich . You cannot eat too much of it but once you taste it you will never go back to the Ho Hum fruitcake that we eat .
Not too dark, not too rich. Moist and nutty - no icing, I like nuts put on the top before it is baked and they go all nice and crunchy. Usually my mum's is best!!!It is a love it or hate it food item, no "meh's " here. Homemade? Light or dark? Soaked in booze? The very idea makes you wake up in a cold sweat? Let's hear everyone's thoughts on fruitcake.
