Mom’s Magic Fruitcake Recipe

As my mother for the first time publicly shared this recipe on facebook, it means I can share it on the blog! Think you do not like fruit cake, just could not find the time an it must be aged right.. Trust me.. try this one.. its delightful!

Mom got the recipe from a older lady called  Mrs. Lou Scott that she worked with in the 80’s, she says that it was on the back of a canned milk can in the 1050’s from when she was living on her farm.

Magic Fruitcake:
I am posting this recipe after numerous requests again this Christmas.

If you like a mild fruitcake that doesn’t have to age, this is the one!

2 eggs
3 cups of mincemeat/your choice of brand
1 can of condensed milk
Mix well in large bowl:

Then add
2-1/2 cups of flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups of chopped dried fruit-your choice eg cherries
1 cup chopped nuts

Mix well, place in well greased bundt pan.

Bake at 300 for about an hour and a half.

Let rest for fifteen minutes and then turn out of the pan. cool on rack. this is the fastest and delicious.

    It sounds great FG; and, if you really wanted to make it “tipsy”, there’s always your choice of brandy/ whisky/ whatever for making a nice, simple glaze/ icing; )
