This is my 90-year-old grandmother's recipe. Very simple.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 225 degrees F (110 degrees C). Grease and flour a tube pan.
  • In a large bowl, combine sugar, flour, soda, cinnamon, cloves, allspice and nutmeg. Add eggs, lemon rind, vanilla, and 1/2 cup brandy. Mix thoroughly. Stir in fruit, nuts, and melted butter. Pour into prepared pan.
  • Bake at 225 degrees F (110 degrees C) for 1 hour, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
  • Wrap cooled cake in foil. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons brandy over the cake everyday for 2 weeks.
