Fruit cakes are iconic symbols of the holiday season and come in nearly infinite variations. They can be light or dense, soaked in alcohol or dry, heavily spiced or simply sweet. But in the end, so long as it has dried or candied fruit, it's a fruitcake!
This heavenly slice of cake has a wonderfully soft and lightly sweet pound cake base with Autumn fruits baked in. Dried raisins, oranges, cranberries and figs soaked in syrup add tang and texture, lifting up this rich cake.
