SUMMERTIME FRUIT CAKE


CLICK TO DOWNLOAD OR PRINT RECIPE


This cake is not like the dense and heavy fruit cakes served during the holidays. Summertime fruit cake uses our favorite fresh summer fruits- peaches, plums and apricots and flavors them with True Cinnamon and Allspice. The batter is moist and delicious, & sweetened with bits of Crystallized Ginger. An amazing cake that's great served warm (with or without the glaze) and even better the next day! It's a true summertime treat.
