    I have seen several postings on here about people feeding their chickens/pets/husbands fruitcake. Not me! I LOVE it - both the cake form and the cookie type. How many other people also like fruitcake?

    I don't like fruitcake but I'm actually pretty sure it's because I've only had crappy fruitcake. It has all the ingredients I SHOULD love, but just tastes so funny and dense and weird.... I think if I made it myself and used my own finer liquors to soak it, I'd actually like the darn stuff.

    .... are you guys getting your chickens drunk?

    Oh dear, this might be another of those cultural things I don't know about [​IMG]

    All our fruitcakes are soakedin liquor for months before serving. [​IMG]

    Like this: http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/15039/christmas+fruit+cake

    But
    some recipes I know you continue to pour brandy over the whole cake for a few months instead of just the fruit.

    I haven't had any for a couple of years. But, there's this one kind of fruitcake that is more "cakey" than the others. I love that one and can eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The other type, I can take or leave it, but I don't hate it.

    I hate nuts and to me, those candied things they call fruit are just gross. [​IMG]

    I put "On the fence" because there was not a catagory for "depends".

    I like fruitcake that is moist and has lots of nuts and none of the bitter fruit. Oh and marinated in brandy. [​IMG]
