Apricot Fruitcake

Another fantastic fruitcake recipe for the holiday season. It was first made available to CakeRecipe.com. Pecans are a good substitute for walnuts.

The fruitcake is very moist . I made it on a Sunday and had it for breakfast on Monday. It was similar to a fruitcake that has been maturing for three months. Perfect if you’re a bit not up to date with your fruitcake baking for the holidays. That’s precisely what I’m looking to be used for.
