    I love my grandma’s Christmas Cake and I have had ones that are similar.  I have no clue what of those options that is.  I prefer it without nuts.

    I’ve actually never tried it. At least I don’t think I have…

    I like them, but I will only eat them if they are made by two people. My grandmother makes an awesome American style one and my friend’s British grandmother makes a Christmas cake that I enjoy. 

    I don’t eat them otherwise.

    @MrsLongcoatPeacoat:  No fruitcake of any kind for me. Where I live, they actually have a fruitcake toss, where they create catapults and have competition for who can launch theirs the furthest.

    With SO’s extended family, we all get together to make a large batch every year. There is enough for everyone to take one home. It’s fun to do, and smells good while baking, but I don’t really care for it.

    I enjoy fruitcake. I don’t care for American fruitcake,  but I enjoy blackcake, panettoni, and British pudding.

    I have always wanted to try it. It doesn’t sound horrible in theory. The picture of that dense deliciousness in this thread is tempting.

    I love it. Since I’m the only one in my family who likes it, I have to buy my own cake. But the great thing is that I get it all to myself.

    I just loved baked stuff in general. Especially if it’s from other countries!
