How many of you have avoid fruitcake at all costs?  Nothing appealing about that wet looking cake filled with unidentifiable pieces of gelatinous fruit, right?  This recipe will help to turn that image around, and will help you build a new set of tasty memories moving forward!

There’s an interesting story behind the name ‘Generous Fruitcake’.  Check it out along with the link to the recipe found on the Beekman Boys website (Beekman 1802 Mercantile):  http://beekman1802.com/recipes/the-generous-fruitcake-recipe

I shared this sweet treat with the teachers at my school, accompanied by a scoop of sweet and delicious cream cheese frosting, compliments of my favorite Ina Garten (Barefoot Contessa):  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/cream-cheese-icing-recipe.html

Really no need to sweeten up the fruitcake, but a little extra something special around the holidays?  “How bad could that be?” (Ina Garten)

Enjoy!
