This recipe comes from my great grandma, maybe not exactly as she would have made it. Apparently my great granddad liked it fried in butter for breakfast. Up until now it has been a verbal recipe so my mother and I have put it down in "writing for prosterity. It's not a fancy fruit cake but something for everyday. I like this with a blue cheese.
