Naw, leave it here

Surprized you only used 1 gallon (3.78 L) of whiskey for this recipe.

I would have used more.

Ahh, does this explain why you are seeing two Mary's again? (cf. Pam's Brunch Casserole recipe.)

Mmmmmmm! tht fruitcake recipie sounds great! However, my fruitcake recipie only has 3 words: Collin Street Bakery (Corsicana, TX)...I've been eating a little bit for the past 46 years (guess they never get too old), and even though I've tried, my cooking skills can't come close...:cry ...Maybe Thomas & Janifer's recipie is more my speed:lol and yes, I DO like fruitcake...hehe

Well, yes, I'm sort of ashamed to say it, but the Collin St. fruitcake I actually like (not like those average logs you buy from the local high school band student) My grandmother used to send one every year, and it was quite tasty and moist. We bought one for my wife's brother and sister-in-law in D.C., and they smuggled it back here during their last visit and left it under the pillow (thinking it was a gag gift)...I called them up and thanked them for being so thoughtful! (and let them grovel a while after my wife told them it had actually been a real present, not a gag)...

Fruitcake

Funny you should mention that, Craig. I know this is a section for recipes, and this may be moved to another thread, but I just have to tell you that I was just getting ready to post something on fruitcakes in general. Yes, I am one of those closet fruitcake lovers. Manage to get by all year, but lo and behold, it starts showing up again in the stores. Now I have to tell you, not just any ol' fruitcake will do. I'm really quite the connoiseur when it comes to fruitcake. Some are what I call skaters. You know...not great but'll do until something better comes along. Then there's Collins. The typical good fruitcake. Yum! Of course a few decades ago, my Mother use to make the absolute best there ever was. She finally quit because it was a lot of trouble and it seemed that everyone was always on a diet and....well, I, for one never was when it came to her fruitcake, but times change so I have learned to really like Collins St. I think they are the home of the gift that never stops giving...you know you give it to someone, they give it to someone else, and so on. Well, I'm here to tell you, the cake always stops at my house never to be seen again.;)

Yes, I admit it. I tried to hide it for years. I also scoffed at those who said they liked fruitcake (who really eats that stuff?), while in secret I devoured it. Then I got older and really didn't care who knew. Now I eat it in public and admit it to the world. I love fruitcake.

Who among us is so brave they can admit that they like fruitcake? I shall do a poll...and we shall see. Look for the poll in the General Chat Section. See you there!
