I came up with this cake several years ago when I gave a large company an exclusive on my White Fruitcake and needed something to replace it. I havenít made it in a long time but think itís well worth bringing back-Iíve missed it, and so have some customers who remember it! The idea here is the finest fruits of summer preserved for winter use, dried apricots, cherries, pears and nectarines plumped with guava juice, Kirsch and Pear William eau de vies.
The nuts are pecans, Brazil nuts, whole blanched toasted almonds and hazelnuts, the peels my own white grapefruit, picked in Napa, blood orange and Rangpur lime I picked in Morgan Hill, and Meyer lemon from Gene Lester. The batter is similar to the White Fruitcake, but with peach and guava nectar instead of orange juice, and scented with cardamom, cinnamon and vanilla. The soaking cognac here is infused with the rare champagne geranium leaves I grow, a favorite of mine. Garnished with a Seville orange peel flower and California bay leaf.
Ingredients: flour, sugar, butter, eggs, coconut, dried apricots, cherries, pears, nectarines, white raisins, hazelnuts, almonds, pecans, Brazil nuts, candied Meyer lemon, Rangpur lime, blood orange & white grapefruit peel, guava and peach juice, herb-infused brandy, vanilla, baking powder, spices and salt
I made a similar sauce for a short time many years ago, but I had to make a raspberry sauce for each batch and it was too much work. Now Iím able to use my Raspberry Champagne Jelly, which has become the star ingredient, along with framboise liqueur and an infusion of rose geranium. Available as a seasonal limited edition only, this will not last!
I tried a dozen different combinations of mints before settling on this oneóextract of the mojito variety is very costly but worlds apart from any other Iíve tried, and well worth the expense, blended here with dark chocolate and dark rum to bridge the affinity of these flavors. Available as a seasonal limited edition only, this will not last!
Cooks traditionally made a both a light and a dark cake, so named by the tone of their fruit and batter. With molasses, brown sugar, port wine and spices, dark cakes were darker in flavor as well. Since my grandmother's recipe was lost, I worked from many old sources to forge a unique take on this classic. I chose cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, 10-year-old Ficklin port, local hazelnuts and pecans. Walnuts are doused with boiling water before toasting to reduce bitterness.
Deeply ripe oranges from DeSantis Farms are squeezed for juice just before it's added. I use their dark raisins, prunes, soak their black figs in Pear William eau de vie. Kadrawi dates, an ancient variety, come from Flying Disc Ranch in Thermal, California. Into the mix go my own rare candied Texas lemon and Buddha's hand citron, bergamot, blood orange and white grapefruit peels, candied young ginger. Each cake is soaked in Jack Daniels bourbon whiskey, topped with California bay leaf and candied blood orange peel star.
