Tea and Fruitcake

We don't usually think of fruit cake in April since it is traditionally a Christmas sweet, but I wasn't feeling well enough to bake in November or December. Now I wanted to use up the dried and candied fruit which has been taking up space in our extra refrigerator.
I always watch Anna Olsen's baking series and she demonstrated making your own candied orange peel and used it in a fruit cake.
It all looked so delicious, and the result proved it! The peel is so fragrant and adds a fresh flavour to the cake.

The recipe can be found here
I am joining Sandi's friends at "No Place Like Home"

Dear Millie,
I'm so happy to have you join me once again! I have been wondering how you are. {I have you on my prayer list and I have been praying every day for you.} Your fruit cake looks beautiful. I still have a few slices of my Sultana cake left from Christmas. That is one of the things I appreciate about fruit cake, is that they get better and better even months later. I haven't tried any of Anna's recipes although I do know who she is. I don't get her show. Thanks so much for sharing and enjoy the rest of your day.

Blessings,
Sandi

Welcome back Millie! I had just sent a comment to you in your last post this morning to see how you are. I'm glad you are doing much better now. I'm not a fruit cake maker and don't eat it much either. Take care and enjoy the spring days. Blessings, Pam
