Christmas or Wedding Fruit Cake Recipe

An easy fruitcake recipe with apricot brandy and chopped candied fruits and spice cake mix.


1 package spice cake mix (2 layer size)
1 package (3 3/4 ounces) instant lemon pudding mix
2/3 cup apricot nectar
1/4 cup Apricot brandy
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs
1 cup chopped dates
1/2 cup chopped candied cherries
1/2 cup chopped candied pineapple
1 cup chopped walnuts
Glaze, optional
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
2 to 3 tablespoons apricot brandy


In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, pudding mix, apricot nectar, 1/4 cup apricot brandy, and vegetable oil. Beat on medium speed until batter is smooth, about 2 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.
Fold in the chopped fruits and nuts. Turn batter into a generously greased and floured 10-inch tube pan. BAke at 350° for 50 to 55 minutes for 50 to 55 minutes, or until cake tests done. Cool for 15 minutes in the pan then remove to a rack to cool thoroughly. For best flavor, wrap and store in refrigerator for 24 hours before serving.
Combine 2 to 3 tablespoons of apricot brandy with 1 cup confectioners' sugar; drizzle over fruitcake before serving, if desired.
