I would like to make fruitcakes for gift giving for the holidays any recipes for such would be appreciated. Thanks.
Check out the Harvest Exchange forum. There was a long thread posted on Fruitcakes not too long ago. Here's the link, I hope it works. :-)
There are actually 2 fruitcake threads still "live" on the harvest forum. Fruitcakes 2 is on the first page and if you do a search on "fruit cake" you'll find the original as well.
If you can tell us a bit more about what you're looking for the members might be able to provide something specific. How do you define "easy"? Would you like to begin with a mix? Do you prefer candied fruit or dried? Alcohol or alcohol free? Dark or light?
Here is a link for an easy fruitcake formula that starts with a poundcake mix and gives you lots of choices.
