My new spin on fruitcake

This tradition has major staying power: It dates all the way back to the Victorian era. This is when the dense, ultra-sweet confection first became intertwined with Christmas celebrations, eventually making its way to North America. This delicious tradition still has its place in modern Christmas celebrations—especially if you put a 21st century spin on the time-honoured classic.

A modern take - Old-school fruitcake is designed for longevity. It is said to last up to 25 years, but let’s not test that theory. Today, why not skip the centuries-old recipe altogether and whip up a lighter cake using seasonal goodies like cranberries or dried delights (figs, apricots, etc.). It will be too delicious to last even a few days.
