Introduction

Originally a Brazilian recipe called Bolo Noite de Natal, but very similar to the traditional American one. I gave it a few healthy tweaks (believe it or not!) and, of course, you can add the kinds & amounts of fruits & nuts you like best. Less butter, sugar, eggs, etc can also be used-depending on your taste, dietary needs & opinion.
This is not a last minute type of dessert to make. It's a fruitcake which requires a bit of time & loving dedication to make, but which just may become one of your favorite Christmas traditions for years to come!

Number of Servings: 28

Ingredients

    1 3/4 cp brown sugar (or a mix of white & brown)
    3/4 cp butter or margarine
    4 eggs
    1/4 cp milk
    1/2 cp grape (or apple) juice

    1/2 cp whole wheat flour
    1 1/2 cp white flour
    1-2 tsp cocoa, unsweetened, dry
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 tsp baking powder

    50g (about 3 med) figs, chopped, fresh or
    canned
    100g (about 1 cp) prunes, chopped
    1/2 cp maraschino cherries, chopped
    1/2 cp black and/or white raisins, chopped
    1 cp walnuts, chopped
    1/2 cp cashew nuts, chopped

Directions

Beat sugar & margarine together, add eggs & beat. (Or you may put just the yolks, then beat the whites and fold in at the end after the other ingredients have been added.)
Add milk & juice alternately with the combined dry ingredients, then add fruit & nuts (add beaten whites here, if you choose to do it this way).
Put in a greased & floured tube pan and bake @ 300-350 degrees for 60-90 min, depending on your oven.

Makes 24 1"-servings if made in a 9" tube pan.
