{sms} boozy cake with fruit and nuts


Technically this is a fruitcake, but in reality it was more cake than fruit and a boozy one at that. Instead of making one loaf, I made minis for easier sharing. These were a big hit at both work and with the family. The recipe called for brandy and amazingly enough my liquor collection (in existence only since I started baking) does not have brandy. Instead of brandy I used amaretto.

Thank you to Karin of Sugar and Spice & Everything Nice for hosting Golden Almond Fruitcake, this week’s Sweet Melissa Sundays. If you would like the recipe, visit her blog or buy the book.

  1. Great title! Got my attention! I skipped making this one…not a fruitcake fan and there were too many ingredients I didn’t have on hand. Your minis look great!
