    Made this Fruitcake for Christmas 2016. Made it as per recipe, same pans as well. Turned out fantastic! Taste is great. Only thing I would like to ask is what kind of BRANDY (brand) is used? I dont know anything about BRANDY so I used E&J brand. What does Martha use? I will be making this again! People who dont like Fruitcake even liked it.
