F.Y.I.: Fruitcake isn’t American. The history of fruitcake goes way back, all the way to ancient Rome. A recipe from 2000 years ago had pomegranate seeds, pine nuts and raisins mixed into a cake made out of barley mash.
Later in the Middle Ages, fruitcakes with honey, preserved fruit and spices were popular.
Fruitcake made with butter and sugar was banned for a while in Europe in the 18th century because it was thought to be just too rich and tasty. From the 19th century on fruitcake became a traditional wedding cake in England.
