12th Night Prep: Fruit "Bread"
OK, it is really white fruit cake, but if I call it that no one will even try it. Which is good and bad. Good because there is more left for me. Bad because there is more left for me. I loosely base it off of this Pillsbury recipe. Except that I use real dried apricots (rather than the more readily available Turkish style.) I used dried Michigan cherries. I use candied orange peel rather than citron, (Use the best available. Peel off the pith if it is thick.) This is supposed to be a white fruitcake. Spud 2 and I had a wee bit of a communication problem and a failure on my part to check the oven temp so it baked a wee bit hotter and longer than it should have. But it looks pretty good. This year, I will be soaking it in ginger liqueur.
