Fruitcake without citron, peels or candied fruit.

I had a recipe which called for maraschino cherries, canned pineapple and dates. Does anyone have a similar recipe to share?

  1. how about one of these?
    - for this one you could just omit the apple juice, and sub a 16-oz can of pineapple - with some of the juice drained - for the candied pineapple.

      I don't have a recipe similar to your lost one, but I use Alton Brown's recipe for Free Range Fruitcake that doesn't include any of the ingredients you're looking to avoid. I've made it many times and it's very adaptable to special requests ( always more pecans) or to the addition of whatever ingredients I have on hand or feel like tossing in.
