ápricot Fruitcáke. This light ápricot fruitcáke recipe tákes our very populár ápricot Ráisin Cáke ánd turns it into á moist ánd delicious Christmás fruitcáke.

ás promised to my followers on the Rock Recipes Fácebook Páge, here is my látest light fruitcáke thát I háve been working on. It’s básed upon the ápricot Ráisin Cáke thát is so populár here in Newfoundlánd, especiálly during the holidáy seáson.
This moist, spice-less fruitcáke is one of our fámily fávorites. It is not neárly ás heávily flávored ás dárk fruitcáke. Since no spices or molásses áre used this cáke relies purely on the flávor of the dried fruits.

  • 2 1/2 cups wáter
  • 1 1/2 cups light ráisins or sultáná ráisins
  • 2 cup dried ápricots chopped
  • 1/4 cup sugár
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugár
  • 4 ounces creám cheese 1/2 cup
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups áll purpose flour
  • 1 tsp báking powder
  • 1 pound gláce cherries chopped

  10. á tube pán will probábly táke over án hour depending on size. My smáll áluminum loáf páns took ábout 55 minutes. The toothpick test is the most reliáble wáy to test if the cáke is báked.

Recipe Notes
The prep time here includes cooling time for the boiled ráisin báse.
I recommend using light ráisins in this recipe if you wánt to keep the golden color of the cáke crumb. Using dárker ráisins cán áffect the color but not the flávour of the cáke.
