Light Fruit Cake Vintage Recipe Card

Fruit cake is a holiday tradition in my house. I love the thick, chewy combination of fruits and nuts. My mother’s recipe is excellent, so I don’t know why more people like it.

This recipe isn’t my mothers but it looks good. For me, it’s all about the fruit mixture used — I prefer dates, candied cherries, candied pineapple, and pecans.
