Fruit cake is my mom's favourite type of cake...I have made it a couple of times...every time with the ingredients i have at hand at that time...one time without egg(for mom) added a banana instead of egg...every time it came out good..This is Alton Brown's recipe..You can find it here...You can addthe dried blueberries, raspberries,almonds, walnuts,currants,etc...All the ingredients here are healthy too..apricots are excellent source of iron other than dates...and we add ginger,dry ginger, cloves and cinnamon too...You can try with brown sugar too..it will become still more healthy ..Do try and enjoy christmas...Happy christmas everyone...enjoy...
