White Fruitcake, Aged 1 Year

Like the English Plum Puddings that were traditionally made a year ahead, fruitcakes do improve with age. All my cakes rest at least a month before I sell them. In this case, older is better. This is not, as you might think, an attempt to unload last year’s leftovers at premium prices. I actually bake and set aside a certain number every season to age, and it costs a lot to keep them in climate controlled refrigeration all that time, but it’s worth it. Over the last year the flavor has developed, expanded and become more complex. Like a wine that was fun while young but more serious now that it's aged, these fruitcakes have become a real fruitcake lover's treat.

Ingredients: flour, sugar, butter, eggs, white raisins, dried pineapple, glacéed cherries, coconut, fresh orange juice, Brazil nuts, almonds, walnuts, pecans, candied young ginger, candied Meyer lemon, blood orange, bergamot & Rangpur lime peels, brandy, baking powder, salt
