This great recipe has been brought to you by kingarthurflour.comwebsite , thanks for sharing it with us


Here below is a list of the ingredients you will need to make this recipe



More of a cake with fruit than a traditional “fruitcake,” this cake is stuffed with apricots, cherries, cranberries, and toasted nuts (in place of the usual fruitcake’s citron and peel), then glazed with a sweetened orange juice syrup. Moist and nicely dense, it’s a revelation to those who think they don’t like fruitcake; and a nice change for aficionados of the typical dark, liquor-soaked loaf.



  • 2 cups dried cranberries or orange-flavored dried cranberries; or Orange Jammy Bits
  • 2 cups dried fruit blend or dried apricots, chopped; or Apricot Jammy Bits
  • 1/2 cup water, cranberry juice, or brandy
  • 1 3/4 cups candied red cherries


  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon orange oil, 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon Fiori di Sicilia, or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 3/4 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 cups diced pecans or walnuts, optional*

  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup sugar
