{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.
