Quick Fruitcake is not your usual one! It has no booze and you don’t have to wait for days to enjoy it. The version I’m bringing you today is kid friendly and I have a feeling that you’ll love it.

I’m not fond of fruitcakes filled with fruits, so I used raisins and cherries. Made this fruitcake extra rich by adding cream to the batter. Kept the sweetness balanced by going easy on the sugar.

Dell’s Maraschino Cherries are firm and when baked hold their shape. The cherries do not turn mushy after baking and are not overly sweet.

The firmness of these cherries made the chopping easy. You can read more about Dell’s Maraschino Cherries here.

Making Quick Fruitcake.

You don’t need an occasion to make this cake, but you want a big glass of milk or a cup of coffee to go with this moist and elegant cake.

Some add almond meal to their fruitcake, but my Quick Fruitcake has cornmeal instead, this helps it stay moist longer and enhances the texture. Feel free to replace the cornmeal with the almond meal, if you wish.

When this quick fruitcake is baked, the surface will be crunchy but that’s alright, it will turn moist in few hours. This fruitcake tastes amazing if consumed three to four hours after baking. In fact, the taste will be heavenly the next day. All you have to do is keep it in an airtight container.
