I was glad to find a fruitcake recipe that had dried fruit rather than candied fruit.The pumpkin makes this so moist... 1 Cup Plain Flour 1-1/2 Cups Self Rising Flour 1 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Butter 3 Cups Dried Fruit (I used apricots,dried cranberries and prunes) 1 Cup Walnuts or pecans 3 Eggs 1 Cup Pumpkin(not pie filling) 1 pinch salt 1 tsp Vanilla
Mix the dried fruit and nuts with the flour. Cream butter and sugar,add eggs, pumpkin,vanilla and salt..mix well.Stir in fruit and flour.Bake one hour at 350 degrees or until browned and a skewer comes out clean...I use mini loaf pans ..this can be made in a bundt pan..if you use the mini pans bake at 325 degrees and check after 40 minutes...Be sure and grease the pans. If using all regular flour add 2 1/4 tsp. baking powder to flour mix.
A glaze can be poured over when still warm in pans. Equal parts O.J. concentrate and icing sugar.
