Holiday Fruit Cake – Christmas time

Jump to Recipe

Fabulous holiday fruitcake! This is my own fruitcake recipe and it’s a family favorite. The mixture of fruits and nuts helps make it a tasty treat.

A common Christmastime tradition is fruitcake, and there’s so many varieties to choose from. My version is free of alcohol and loaded with both candied and dried fruit, as well as walnuts. Christmas Apricot and Walnut Fruitcake just might be your new favourite Christmas tradition!
