"Over 21" Fruit Cake for the Holidays
"The ovens were blazing; the burners were lit. We mixed up the batter, but there was no time to sit!"
That's what the bakers are singing over at Kathy Casey Food Studios.
Yes, it's that season when cooks have been busy chopping nuts and soaking fruit in hooch - to make "Over 21" Real Fruit Cake made with Maker's Mark.
The bakers bake up the cakes in fat little loaves then brush them hot out of the oven with an aromatic syrup of bourbon and brown sugar.
Kathy Casey says, "This fruit cake is sure to convert any fruit cake hater. And with all that delicious bourbon, fruit and nuts in it, this fruit cake certainly won't end up in the closet for 5 years. I love a slice for Christmas morning breakfast."
These fruitcakes are chock full of bourbon-soaked dried fruits, including apricots, cranberries, tart cherries and golden raisins as well as loads of nuts from toasted hazelnuts to exotic pistachios - all mixed up with a Maker's Mark spiked and spiced batter.
Cakes are then baked until golden and then brushed hot out of the oven with a bourbon and brown sugar glaze. These plump little loaves are truly full of goodies. After tasting this D'Lish fruitcake, you'll never again say you don't like fruitcake.
Our one-pound loaves are priced at $10.95 this holiday season. Starting November 26th until December 14th, cakes can be picked up at Kathy Casey Food Studios or purchased online at www.kathycasey.com while supplies last. Order early as the cakes do fly out the door.
Watch the YouTube video to see the mayhem in making this D'Lish fruitcake.
