You know how it is - recipes come and go and years later you think you imagined that memorable fruitcake. Looking for that memory or have one to share? I'll post 'em here for others to answer if you'll email me. I'll post the answers as well. Thanks!
Pre-imbibing Fruits and Nuts with Brandy and Honey
I wish I hadn't lost the recipe I used for years, which I found in a magazine article. I remember it was written by a man. Anyway, you started with 4 cups of your choice of dried fruits and 6 cups of nuts, or maybe it was the other way around, and your choice of two tablespoons of spices, and dumped about 1 cup of brandy or other booze and 1 cup of honey or molasses into a bowl. You kept turning this mixture for a couple of days. I especially liked that part. Then you made up the batter - the author insisted you should use the same amount no matter how many fruitcakes you made, which makes no sense. I used to make four or five 9 X 5 breadpans or the equivalent. Anyone have that recipe?
