Classic Fruits Cake

Hello everybody..........
Merhaba from Türkiye 👋

Hope this post meets you in healthy, happy and wonderful life ☙

Did you have idea for your holiday table coming soon? Maybe this Classic Fruitcake could be your new favorite menu.
İt's moist, full with many dried fruits, and do not skip the spices aroma which definitely reminds you of the real holiday in a place called HOME 🏡💟

A fruitcake should be rich, it should taste like dried fruit and spices. My fruitcake uses raisins, canned cherries, diced dried apricots, dates, and some orange juice with dark brown sugar and some spice. Pinch of salt in this recipe could bring up every sweet and sour from the fruits and compact the cake to perfection every bites. It should be dense and moist crumb.

Fruitcake is a cake made with candied or dried fruit, nuts, and spices. In the United Kingdom, certain rich versions may be iced and decorated. Fruitcakes are typically served in celebration of weddings and Christmas.
This cake tastes best when it has been kept for a few days before eating. But unfortunately in my house this can not survive after I took out from refrigerator 😃

My husband said he loves the fruits in it and the spice. He just requests maybe some walnut or pistachio would be great. Yeess... I would add some nuts next bake 😊😊
So for this recipe you could add some nuts as well.

In this recipe I use speculaas spice mix. It's a traditional Dutch spice that commonly use in Indonesian kitchen as well. The spice usually mix in some cookies recipes. See note below for make the substitute.
