"Hi, I'm April and I love fruitcake!"
(Hi, April!)

I absolutely love the stuff.  Every year I try one from a different bakery - my fave so far comes from Holy Cross Abbey.  I like it as a slice with my cup of tea, warmed with some ice cream, or sliced and toasted.  I like it dripping with rum and brandy and with no alcohol at all.  I even harbor a secret passion for the candied cherries on their ownShocked

So, is there anyone else here who dares admit they, too, are hooked on the stuff?

I love date cake. It ain't the same, but I expect the dense, chewy little slivers of sweetness are very close to what good fruitcake tastes like.

I wouldn't say "hooked on the stuff"...more of a casual user.  Wink  But that is with the big caveat that it must contain NO CITRON!

We once made a trip from South Carolina to Texas to do 3 things: eat barbecue in Austin, eat BlueBell ice cream in Brenham, and eat fruitcake from the Collin Street Bakery in Corsicana.

I love it! If you want to try an intriguing recipe--I think I'm going to make it--Fine Cooking has a How-To Guide in this month's edition.

Bwah!  "Weekend fruitcake user"...   Cheesy

I'm more or less the same.  My Nana used to make fruitcake boozy enough to make the kids' table dizzy.  I keep meaning to do the same one of these days, in her memory.

I like fruitcake. Normal, bulk standard fruitcake. Yum. But christmas cake? Wedding cake? CHRISTMAS PUDDING? No. Just noooo. I absolutely hate the stuff - all three. They're just vile in every possible sense of the word. *Shudder* Cheesy

I've only had Christmas pudding a few times, but liked it as well or better than fruit cake.  What is Christmas cake like?  Also, wedding cake in the US is typically white cake with white frosting.  I'm taking it that wedding cake over there is a different animal?  Sometimes the "groom's cake" in the US is a fruitcake.
