Everyone knows a good fruitcake takes time--those of us that know that fruitcake can be "good," that is.  I know it's a dessert with a bad reputation, but as far as I'm concerned, combining baked goods and booze is never a bad idea.

If you're up for a challenge that will last 'til Christmas--and beyond, if you want it to--here are some fruit cake recipes for you.  The first one is actually pretty straight-forward, but the next three definitely offer a twist on tradition.

Fruitcake with Chocolate and Cider--and confusing metric measurements...
A last-minute Fruitcake with Olives

Oh, and thanks for sharing those advent calendar links!  It's always fun to see what other people are doing--or at least, are dreaming about doing.  Keep the fresh ideas coming!

  1. I love fruitcake! But if you don't, or if you're out of time......I actually saw an "inflatable fruitcake" yesterday that looked pretty much like the real thing.
