Paradise and Pennant Candied Fruit

White Fruitcake

The best fruitcake is worth the wait! Begin crafting this delightful delicacy 4-6 weeks before you plan to serve it. Fruitcake fans will enjoy an amazing assortment of goodies thrown in for fun and flavor, such as cherries, pecans, and pineapple. Keep things moist by covering with a wine-soaked cloth.



  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, spoon & leveled
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup milk or wine (I use milk)
  • 4 eggs
  • 8 ounces red candied cherries, divided
  • 8 ounces green candied cherries
  • 8 ounces candied pineapple, cut in half lengthwise
  • 4 cups coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1 1/2 cups golden baking raisins
  • 20 pecan halves for decorating the top of cake
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup sweet or semi-sweet or sweet wine for soaking the top of cake.


Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
