NOTES to make good old fruit cake recipe

Be sure and use Eagle Brand milk.
I save out about a cup of pecans and green and Red cherries to press Into the top about half way through cooking. If you don’t like coconut you can leave it out.
This cake is fairly expensive to make. But a little goes a long way!
I always wrap mine well and store indefinitely in the freezer. Remove from freezer about a day ahead of time. It will probably cost you around $100.00 because of the candied fruits.
You may want to start by quartering the measurements
