This recipe from reader Carol J. Rhodes of Houston, Texas, is lighter in texture and more delicate than traditional fruitcake, yet keeps all its appeal with nutmeg, pecans, raisins, and a touch of brandy.

    i made this cake yesterday at a temp. of 300 for i.5 hours.it came out beautiful looking but very dry--a consistency of a fruit cake.this gave me a great idea! im going to soak it in rum for several days using the cheese cloth and foil method.i know this will be outstanding with a dash of whip cream.

    I read reviews before making cake. Cooked at 300 degrees For 1.5 hours and then 350 for 25 minutes. Cake came out perfect. I made a few modifications. We like Myers Jamaican dark rum instead of Brandy. It complimented the raisins nicely and made the glaze with a leveled tabelspoon of orange juice concentrate straight out of the freezer with a drop of water and 2 cups of confectioners sugar. We liked it. Definitely a cake to have with coffee or tea.

    cake has too much flour and cooked at too high a temperature for too long. I made the cake and it was beyond dry and crumbly!! a waste of 20.00
