Joy of Cooking Fruit cake recipe -- help!

  • 4

I am looking for a fruitcake recipe that was in the Joy of Cooking cookbook 1975 edition. It has 12 eggs and the whites are beaten separately and added to the batter. Can you help?

    1. I have the 1975 edition. There is a Dark Fruit Cake #I that uses 15 eggs with the whites beaten separately. That's the only fruit cake that uses near that many eggs.

      Here's a link to it:

        That's it! Thank you so very much. I have not made this cake in years and I had a request from a family member to make it. My book was lost in a move a long time ago. You are an absolute lifesaver.
