Good Fruit Cake Directions

Preheat oven, spray pans.

In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.
Add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.
Add the brandy and orange juice and gently stir.
Put 1/2 cup of flour in a medium bowl. Add the currants, dates and raisins. Stir to coat the fruit.
Add the remaining flour to butter mixture along with the salt, baking soda and ground cloves mix well.
Stir in the nuts.
Spoon the batter into prepared pans. Bake for the allotted time or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool on wire racks.
Wrap cake in cloth that has been soaked in brandy.
Then wrap in foil.
This will allow the fruit cake to ripen.
When ready to serve, make frosting and spread on your good fruit cake if desired.

Frosting for Fruit Cake:
Cream the butter until smooth. Add the sugar, flavoring and enough liquid to desired spreading consistency.
Spread on cake.

Substitute, substitute, substitute. Recipes were made to be messed with. Use alternative ingredients to make your recipes healthier. Cook with broth (low-sodium vegetable, low-fat chicken or beef) instead of with oils. Use vinaigrettes or citrus-juice-based dressings instead of creamy ones, which are often full of saturated fat. Try olive oil, skim milk, or yogurt instead of butter or cream. Re-work dessert recipes that require heavy cream with evaporated skim milk or yogurt. For cakes and other desserts, substitute fresh-fruit puree as a topping instead of frosting. And one of my favorites: pancakes with applesauce, not maple syrup. These changes will give your favorite recipes great new flavor, and your food will be healthier!
