Texas Pecan Candy Cake

Rated as 4.71 out of 5 Stars

"This cake should be made at least two weeks ahead to allow the flavors to blend. Hint: I cheat and use the date pieces coated with sugar (instead of regular pitted dates), just taking off most of the sugar by rubbing them in my hands."

For those of you who love fruit cake, this is quick and easy and moist! Very dense with sweet fruit. Everyone who loves fruit cake in my family loved it this Christmas! It's a keeper.

This is an amazing "un"fruitcake! It looks like your typical, but even my fruitcake-hating Mom LOVES this! It is going to be a yearly Christmas goody in our home!

yummy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!...

super recipe. I did not use pineapple or coconut. A no no in this house hold. Just added more pecans and cherries. It is so good.
