Happy Holidays!

I’ve been so busy with work, holiday plans and home renovations lately that I’ve been neglecting to blog but I thought I’d quickly share a 1951 recipe for Wesson Oil’s “Famous Fruitcake.” I’m not all that fond of fruitcake myself but I’d like to try making this one someday. If anyone gives it a try I’d love to know how it turns out. Just click on the image to see it full size.

I plan to share a lot more holiday ideas soon. I recently got my hands on some old magazines with great decorating ideas and a lot more recipes. I just need to find some free time to scan them. Happy holidays!

    Fruitcake!!! I won't make this, but I love the ad! Also, I actually like fruitcake, despite its bad rep. Give me a slice with some spiced cider and I'm good to go.

  2. Not a big Fruitcake fan but I'd like to give this a taste. It's fun to imagine what you're grandparents were baking in 1951. I do enjoy the spiced cider though!
