I have alot of good recipes..but I chose this one because it is my late Step-grandmother's on my mother's side of the family. I was named after her – well my middle name. Her ancesters were from France and traced back to serving at the court in Versaille…like it mattered. LOL She lived in a small town all her life, but she did get to go see France/Versaille with us!! She would make this fruit cake for my dad each year. I hate fruit cake but liked hers – she said it was because it was more like a heavy date nut cake, with not too much of that fruit. It freezes well. My dad would sometimes save it, until he lost his Christmas poundage, to indulge.
