A few years ago i was sent an amazing fruitcake and i cant remember where it came from. It was made by eather a church or abbey in the US. I am a lover of fruitcake as long as it is a good one and is moist. Who else likes them and where do you get them?

My mother, who is a lover of fruitcake, swears by the famous Claxton Fruit Cake from Georgia. The fact that she grew up forty miles from Claxton probably plays a role in her preference.

Personally, I prefer a Christmas pudding, which I make myself.

I am a fruitcake lover as well. I never got why they are butt of so many jokes?? Heck if someone gives you one for Christmas and you don't want it send it my way.  Very Happy   Very Happy

The fruitcake from Southern Supreme  is a good one. It is made with more nuts and real dried fruit, instead of the candied fruit you normally see in fruitcakes. Well worth a try. Made right here in North Carolina as well.

I had a bad experience as a child with fruit cake... first time eating it found a moldy piece of fruit in it ( half way through eating some) been scarred for life ever since.... maybe i should give her a another try.

I'm not a big fruitcake fan, but the mere mention brings back fond memories of Johnny Carson.   Laughing

When I was growing up we lived next to a Croation couple and she was a great baker. She baked fruit cakes and topped them with rum and would age them. They were phenomenal but every other fruitcake was judged by what she made. I still like fruitcake with a good cup of coffee.

My only Fruitcake I crave is from Texas, Collins Bakery, order every year and put an extra in freezer, small servings vacumn wrapped. It's the Best.

My grandmother used to make the absolute best fruitcake. I have never tasted better. I wish I had the recipe.
