Made it vegan using earth balance stick butter replacer & ground flax in place of egg. Used organic turbinado sugar instead of white sugar. Also added vanilla & rum extracts. I also used chopped pecans instead of almonds. It was so delicious can't wait to make it again. My daughter requested it for her BIRTHDAY CAKE! Paradise candied fruit is available at Amazon.

Great buttery tasting cake. Easy to make. Not light the heavy traditional fruitcake.

Best and easiest fruitcake recipe. It reminds me of the fruitcakes made by my polish grandfather who was a baker.
