Today celebrates the fruit-filled holiday cake that may or may not be a holiday treat in your house! Fruitcake is made with chopped candied or dried fruit, nut, and spices and sometimes soaked in spirits. This cake dates back to the Romans where they would mix pine nuts, barley mash, pomegranate seeds, raisins, and honeyed wine and shape it into a cake. Then by the early 19th century, the recipe as we know it today started taking shape.
t seems fitting that National Fruitcake Day is after Christmas just in case you would like to re-gift it! But these fruitcake recipes listed below may have you singing a different tune and hoarding it all for yourself!
