How to make it

  • Add to butter-sugar mix. Beat until smooth. Add to dry ingredients. Beat together. Add fruit and nuts to batter. Combine thoroughly. Put into pans.Makes 4 or 5 small loaves.
  • Line the pan bottoms with waxed paper. Set aside.
  • (The paper will not slip if you first wet the pan with a few drops of water or vegetable oil.)

  • #2 - Add 1/3 - 1/2 cup finely chopped ginger with the nuts.

  • #4 - To put some real zip in this holiday treat make several weeks ahead and sprinkle weekly with brandy, bourbon, port or sherry.
