McCall’s White Fruitcake Recipe

Love or hate the idea of fruitcake McCall’s decided to share their version of the dreaded fruitcake in their recipe card collection– It would be neatly tucked away in the Holidays section, Card 24-K, titled White Fruitcake. I’m not even sure how it got named White Fruitcake; looking at the recipe photo it doesn’t look white to me…Am I missing something? Clearly, I must be.

In my 44 years, I have suffered a few undesirable slices of this Christmas Season torture called Fruitcake. I’m really not a huge fan of fruitcake and might even bolt right out of the house if you are offering one slither of this cake poison to me.

I am aware that some love fruitcake and I am often told that the mail order cakes sent around the holidays truly do not reflect the taste of a homemade fruitcake. I am also Leary of those folks and mentally scream in my head, “Lies….ALL Lies!!!”

With that said I leave you with this recipe card to find out for yourself if this recipe is tasty or Christmas Season Torture. May the force be with you, my friends. Be sure to share your thoughts on fruitcake in the comments. Do you love them OR do you loath them as I do?
