I tried this cake over the weekend, and it is fantasic!!!!! It's more on the line, to me anyway, of a husband does not like fruitcake, but he LOVED this cake! I made it exactly by the recipe, I did use marachino cherries, cut in half. It's even better the next day, if you have any left!!!! I plan to use this recipe again and again!!!!

What type of Cherries? Fresh? Marachino? Candied? Canned? I would like to try this recipe but I need to know what type of cherries to use, as this could make quite a difference in the results. Thanks!

This recipe is a definite keeper! I've made it several times over the past month for holiday get-togethers - & everyone that's tried it has loved it. It reminds me of a moist fruitcake - yet even those who HATE fruitcake have tasted it because of others compliments, & they have loved it! Instead of water, I used the juice from the cherries. I thought it was a bit sweet because of this, but when I mention it, others have told me not to change a thing, so I keep making it w/the juice. I also used chunky applesauce, but couldn't tell once the cake was made.
