Jackie's Fruitcake

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This fruit cake is made with cherries, pineapple and walnuts, then frosted with cream cheese frosting. I entered it in the county fair and took first place plus the gold ribbon which entitled me to enter the State Fair.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9 inch Bundt pan.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking power, baking soda, sugar, eggs, cherries, pineapple and walnuts. Stir by hand with a sturdy spoon just until blended. Spoon into the prepared pan, and spread evenly.
  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top springs back when lightly touched. Cool, then invert onto a serving plate. While the cake cools, mix together the butter, confectioners' sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl with an electric mixer until fluffy. Stir in the cream cheese, and beat until smooth. Frost cake with the icing when completely cool.
