Prompt: Did you like fruitcake? Did your family receive fruitcakes? Have you ever re-gifted fruitcake? Have you ever devised creative uses for fruitcake?
I don’t think I would consider myself a huge fan of fruitcake, but I have always liked my mother’s. When I mentioned the topic of today’s prompt, she told me that the fruitcake she makes was the fruitcake my grandmother made – and that recipe came from the Toronto Kresge’s years ago. I don’t have the recipe myself but I looked online and lo and behold, people have actually posted the recipe. You can find everything on the Internet! Apparently, Kresge’s Fruitcake used to be sold by Kresge’s every Christmas and at one point they handed out the recipes to lucky shoppers. I guess my grandmother must have been one of them!
