100% Fruit "Cake" Recipe
This pretty "cake" is actually stacked fresh watermelon and strawberries, decorated with fun cut-out shapes made of sliced fruit. Use cantaloupe, pineapple, or other fresh fruits and berries to make colorful layers of fruit. Kids and adults will love this cake.
This "100% Fruit Cake" was a huge hit! I made mine 3 hours in advance and placed it in a pie plate by chance because I was taking it to a picnic. A lot of fruit juice seeped from the fruit, but fortunately the edges of the pie plate caught the excess fruit juice so I didn't have a big mess. I just "drank away" the excess juice with a straw. From now on when I make this recipe I will place the cake in my flan pan both to catch the juices and so I can stack up lots of fruit for garnish. Thank you InTheKitchen for sharing your recipe.
I made this for a friend’s birthday “cake” and she loved it. It doesn’t take any longer to make than plain fruit salad. The results are worth the time.
This takes 30 days to prepare the fruit for the cake but it's worth it. It's delicious. If you are lucky a 'friend' will give you 2 cups of starter along with a piece of cake so you won't have to go to all the trouble of preparing a starter.
This cake is a rich, dark, moist fruit cake, very flavorful at Christmas. Try icing with almond paste for a more festive touch. This recipe is started in October or November so as to let it mellow before the holidays. I remember very well my mother storing her fruit cake in an old butter churn that belonged to my grandmother and great grandmother. I wish that I had that old crock.
This recipe is over 100 years old and it tastes like hermit cookies. Use only butter in this recipe.
Moist and tasty fruitcake is made with all types of candied fruit and nuts with a hint of orange and more than a hint of bourbon. It takes about three days to complete the process, but it is well worth the time and effort!
