Here is an old fashioned Fruit Cake recipe. Fruit Cake is a hated type of dessert that is usually aged. It used to be something that only the rich could afford to eat because fruit was expensive. As time went on and fruit became less expensive and fruit cake became easier to make people realized it was not that good.
It became a joke in pop culture when Johnny Carson said, ““The worst Christmas gift is fruitcake… There is only one fruitcake in the entire world, and people keep sending it to each other, year after year."
