This fruitcake has been made by the nextdoor neighbor where I grew up since
the 50's. She still gives one to my mother at christmas time each year. The
date flavors predominate in this cake. It was made with grocery store bread
dates when I was young. I have used bahri and menjool dates to make it, and
they provide an even better flavor. If you don't like dates, you will not
like this confection.
