Yes I like most fruit cakes apart from those that are dry.
I make an easy one and my grandson wants to make it with me this weekend so will make a cake for the first time since I was told my sugar level is too high! it has no ADDED sugar though of course has sugar in some of the ingredients including the fruit which has a lot!

Nope. I have never liked it, but quite often make a Weight watchers version... like a slice for my hubby. Made with coffee and chocolate... really easy and delicious.
Yes and no.
I like light fruit cakes but I find I don't like dark fruit cakes as much
No we don't like it. You won't find any in our house.
Yes, I like it a lot. We call it rum cake. Its what we used for our wedding and still have some in the freezer (not sure why) . its good when soaked in rum and port wine. My wife makes it real nice.
I love fruit cake; it's one of my favourites.
Well the one in your pic Finy! is just lovely, and the very kind I would eat :)
Yes, I love fruit cake, especially the dark 1, but I never think to buy it, except in December. We don't eat it on Christmas Day, because we have the Christmas pudding, so it could sit on the shelve for years! I usually buy 1 that's being sold for charity, like the Lions Club or Rotary ones, but 1 can look up to see which 1 has been rated the top 1 to buy.

Yes we buy the charity ones too, and they are really nice. :)

I like the dark fruit cake. We have it at Christmas.
Oh yes, very much - so long as it doesn't have any alcohol in it - what a way to ruin a good cake! And I also hate the 'plastic' cherries. Why people put those things in is a mystery to me. Yuk!
I agree with you Poppy. Why are they even still being sold, after all these years? I don't even see them in the shops, but unfortunately, 'someone' still knows where to buy them!

I do enjoy a good fruit cake! My mum's recipe included loads of REAL glace cherries, and to make it extra moist she would add the drained fruit from a can of Golden Circle Crushed Pineapple to the mix! The juice would be used in some other recipe which was on the go at the time! I sometimes feel that there was more fruit than cake in her wonderful cake!!
Unfortunately, fruit cakes are rather expensive these days, whether we make it ourselves or buy a ready made one, due to the cost of the basic ingredients. Many of the cakes sold at Christmas as Fund Raisers are very nice and I have often bought one of these as a gift, or just for enjoying at home!
Yes I love fruit cake. I would have it at any time of the year

I love fruit cake unless it is dry. The darker the cake and the more alcohol in the cake, all the better. One I had recently was full of alcohol - Guiness and it was absolutely the best fruit cake I have had to date. Also quite a lot of chopped prunes. Absolutely decadent.
I make a lovely moist boiled fruit cake with crushed pineapple which everyone loves. I don't tend to make it at Christmas though as it's an all-year cake for me so have pavlova at Christmas.
Yep. I remember being little and eating wedding cake. I liked the fruit cake (but I LOVED the traditional white icing that went WITH the cake(!
yes

Very much so!!!!!
only ones without peel and glace cherries please! They tend to be too sweet otherwise, boiled ones are good too, Those green pieces in the picture are not tasty either, so really just simply fruitcake for me and of course with custard yum!
Mine especially. When we did two stints as volunteers at Eyre Bird Observatory, our guests described it as the best fruit cake on the Nullarbor, which wasn't saying much. Made a version of it for my husband's 70th. The result is different every time, but I always have pieces of preserved ginger in it. With today's dietary requirements, I had to make a gluten free cake to go with it. Guess which is which in my photo.
Yes i like fruit cake, i normally have a slice warm it up for a few seconds in the microwave and add custard or cream.
