1 1/2 c Butter, softened

1 pk Confectioner's sugar


6 lg Eggs

1 c Bourbon (or rum)

4 T Vanilla extract

1 lb Golden raisins

1 lb Glace cherries

-up to a pound)

1/4 lb Candied orange peel

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line the bottom and sides of a large tube pan and a small loaf pan with foil; grease the pans. Chop coarsely the raisins, cherries, pineapple, citron, orange peel, lemon peel and pecan halves.

In large bowl, soften the 3 sticks of butter. Cream in a box of confectioner's sugar, then fill box to the same level with flour. Pour half of the flour over the fruit and nuts; mix thoroughly so all are well-floured.

Add six eggs to butter/sugar, one at a time, while beating. Add vanilla extract and fold in flour. Stir in fruits and nuts; fold in liquor. Pour into cake pans and bake approximately 2 hours.
