Mmm Cake

So, I have this recipe for cake that is really good-when I tell you the name you will wrinkle up your nose and say "Icky!" and stop reading...But wait!!! It's not that kind of cake!

It's name is "Spoiled Fruitcake" not the fruit cake that weighs a ton and people save it from year to year to give away for white elephant gifts...

This cake is made from fruit, or fruit juice.

When you bottle peaches you will notice that half of the bottle seems to become juice, and we usually end up dumping in down the sink, but wait!!

Make a cake with it instead!! 

I always try to get a picture of things I happen to bake, before, they get cut into...but it's yet to happen, so here is what my last spoiled fruitcake looked like;
I used juice I saved from 2 quarts of peaches to equal 1 quart of juice for this favorite, is to use pears and smoosh em up, and let Tiny Dancer drink the juice, because she likes it.

This is good to bake in a bread loaf pan or regular cake pan. It freezes well. Wrap it in tin foil and it is a great Christmas gift idea!

This recipe will make 1- 9x13 cake pan OR 7 small bread loaf pans OR 2- large bread loaf pans...

Spoiled Fruitcake
In a small bowl;
1 quart fruit smashed with a fork  OR 1 quart juice (any kind)
