I also agree; macerate the fruit for a minimum of 24 hours for better flavor.

I hated fruitcake until I made this one. I have given it to others with rave reviews. In fact, I get numerous requests every year. I procrastinated this year and didn't get around to making the cakes until less than a week before Christmas and people still raved.

I have prepared this cake numerous times with none of the problems mentioned. I have given this cake to many people who have raved about how good it is. I usually double the recipe and use 5-3/4 x 4-1/4 x 2" aluminum pans (recipe yields about nine mini fruitcakes). This year I made the cakes less than a week from Christmas and they were still delicious;...

First of all, for those who panned this dish; what were you expecting. It's a casserole with cream of mushroom soup as an ingredient; certainly not haute cuisine.

I tried this because I had some leftover plain gluten free pasta (quinoi) and roast chicken. I added brocolli and herbs de province. We aren't casserole people, but this...

I substituted gluten free baking mix (Pamela's) for he flour. The cake turned out great and tasted as if I used regular flour.I thought the icing was very good and not too sweet; although I used bittersweet (60%) chocolate."

I have tried quite a few recipes prepared by Laura Calder and this one is another winner. The pork chops are tender and moist and the potatoes have incredible flavor. A great meal for family dinners or for guests."
