Traditional Fruitcake – The Way It Should Be Made

Posted - December 12, 2018
Fruitcake goes back many, many years to ancient Rome where it was made with ingredients like pine nuts, raisins, barley, and pomegranate seeds. The tradition continued into the Middle Ages when the actual name “fruitcake” was given to this dessert. It was at this time that fruits that were preserved were included in the cake. These pastries spread rapidly and developed into many variations. Our traditional fruitcake at Beatrice Bakery Company gives you a delicious dessert option for special occasions.

Mass Production in the US.

Mass production of fruitcake started in the U.S. These cakes have certainly been the focus of some humor down through the years. This is in part because some of the recipes created have lacked appeal for the taste buds. However, there are many versions of traditional fruitcakes that are very delicious and appealing.

Homemade vs. Mass Produced

Many recipes made at home can turn out great, provided that the person making the cake is following a delicious recipe and knows how to bake the cake properly, but can turn out poorly in the hands of an inexperienced baker. Likewise, most mass-produced fruitcakes have received a poor reputation for having little to no flavor and lacking quality ingredients.
