snowdrop’s blonde fruitcake recipe
Soak 1 hr:
¾ c dates (packed)
½ lemon juiced
½ orange juiced
2 t almond extract
pinch sea salt
grind, sift, & set aside in bowl:
1 c almonds
1 c dry coconut shreds
½ c cashews
(to make a dark spiced fruitcake add your spices to the dry ground nut sifting)
1 T cinn
1 T cocoa pwd
½ t nutmeg
2 star anise ground
1 t ginger pwd
fruit filling 1
combine in any ratio to equal ¾ cup total
your choice of the following dry fruits:
raisins, cherries apricots, pineapple, cranberry, currants
in similar size cuts
soak 1 hr in ¼ c of fruit juice of your choice (or brandy, rum…)
in the dehydrator 1 hr
fruit filling 2
1” fresh ginger root sliced & slivered
1 T lemon zest
1 T orange zest
2 T agave
put in bowl in dehydrator 1 hr
1/3 c walnut halves
1/3 c pecan halves
2 T maple syrup
½ t cinnamon
pinch sea salt
toss in small bowl put on teflex sheet in dehydrator for 1 hr
lets put it together!
after the hour of soaking, take the ginger bowl & just drain the juices into the dates (set ginger citrus zest aside)…take the date mixture and blend into a smooth puree.
pour into the ground nut mixture and stir lightly till combined. set cake batter aside.
fruit & nuts:
drain the fruit and put onto cake ‘batter’, also add the ginger citrus zest, …set aside the nicest dozen pecan halves for the garnish and break up the rest of the nuts into the cake batter into small enough pieces. (remember, if the nut pieces are too big… the knife will have trouble slicing the cake neatly… ask me how I know…)
stir the additions lightly till combined then press into your 5-6” cake mold. (Use plastic wrap lining to make sure you can get it back out again.)
plate your cake and decorate with icing if desires & pecan halves.
i used ground coconut & lemon zest powder with a little agave and enough water & 1 T coconut oil to make it workable... it's not a recipe that is perfected yet, but it worked well enough for tonite.

Thank you Drolemil! I hadn't managed to find that on my own and it looks like a winner of a recipe.

I started prepping this recipe. Any ideas about how to make small gifts out of it?
