I'm not sure if it's me, or what, but I think fruit cake gets a bad wrap.
Now it's true I have had some pretty bad fruit cake. But growing up fruit cake was just a part of the holidays and while I don't remember dad ever making it, he always managed to find really good fruit cake. And that trend continues. Dad orders his stuff online now and the quality is really pretty good.
How can something that has butter, eggs, cherries, dried pineapple, walnuts, almonds, pecans, white raisins, brandy and rum be anything but amazing?
I don't know much about a company called Figis, except to say that they have a variety of fruit cakes, and they're good moist and amazingly flavorful. They even offer a "sample" type cake that has a variety of individually wrapped small slices. this way you can pick and choose what kind you want to try.
Granted, it's not very diet friendly, but this time of year there are so many treats that fall into that category. The cool thing about the sample cake is you can have one small piece and it's rich enough to satisfy you for the day.
Anyway, i know I'm probably in the minority, but I like fruit cake. Check out Figis' site and who knows, you might like it too!
