Fruitcake like Mama used to make
Seriously, my British-born Mama made the most divine fruitcakes when we were younger (both me and Mama, that is). This fruitcake is *almost* as good (daughterly loyalty is a must)! Moist, full of flavor, using authentic old-fashioned dried fruits, freshly cracked nuts and despite that ingredient list, a whole host of genuine ingredients. For those of you who think you dislike fruitcake, you've just never had true authentic fruitcake. This one's great and I urge you to give it a try!!

The cake is delicious- especially with a splash of brandy. It's so rich that a 1/4 of a slice is our serving size. Thanks again. by claire
Trappist Abbey Fruit cake
Have ordered this fruitcake before. Still pleased with it as the first time. Recommend it if you are tired of the run of the mill fruitcakes..

A gift for Mom
I bought this for my Mom who grew up on Hostess Fruit Cake. I didn't know how it would compare to Hostess. She loves this fruitcake. She cut it up into tiny pieces so it would last longer!

Trappist Abbey Fruitcake - 1 lb - Oregon  

The Brethren (Monks) of Our Lady of Guadalupe Trappist Abbey in Lafayette, Oregon make the outstanding brandy soaked fruitcake. Dark and dense, it is loaded with fruit and nuts, but not with the typical maraschino cherries and green citron - instead they use raisins, candied pineapple, and candied cherries.

Baked for almost three hours, these delightfully brandy soaked fruitcakes are then soaked in fine brandy. Most of the alcohol evaporates and the rich brandy flavor is absorbed. The cakes are then aged for three months to develop the flavor, a unique balance of the sweet fruits and moist walnuts and pecans with a pleasant finish of spices and brandy.

It will make believers out of even the most ardent fruitcake skeptics.

Read about our trip to visit the Monks who make this award winning fruitcake.
