Trappist Abbey Fruit Cake

3 lbs - Oregon  

The Monks of Our Lady of Guadalupe Trappist Abbey in Lafayette, Oregon make an outstanding Christmas fruit cake. 

Dark and dense, it is loaded with fruit and nuts. The Monks replace the typical maraschino cherries and green citron with raisins, candied pineapple, and candied cherries. 

Baked for almost three hours, the Trappist Abbey fruit cakes are then soaked in fine brandy. Most of the alcohol evaporates and the rich brandy flavor is absorbed. 

The Christmas fruit 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.

Best fruitcake!
I like fruitcake and this is the best I've ever tasted, a perennial favorite at my house. Perfectly moist, incredibly rich and flavorful, great balance of cake, fruit and nuts. Don't wait for the holidays to order and risk it being sold out!

This, no, THIS fruitcake is ABSOLUTE Perfection! In my childhood I had a dense fruitcake that I enjoyed. But adulthood has left me barren until now. Each bite is more yummy than the first. If you think you've had good dense fruitcake, TRY THIS and be humbled.
