Default Ahh! I Smell a Fruitcake on the DCT for December 23, 2009

Ah, what's that I smell? Fruitcake, perhaps? Oh boy, was I right! Christmas is right around the corner and that means many people will be cooking lots of Christmas food, and plenty of Christmas treats. One of the many foods served around this time of year is Fruitcake. A cake made of chopped and candied fruit, dried nuts, and many spices. Sometimes a fruitcake may even be glazed with icing and covered with decorations.

A traditional one looks a lot like this:

Now, you may be wondering a little bit about the history of fruitcakes is. OK, or maybe you're not so interested in the history of fruit cakes.. either way, you should learn a bit.

The History of Fruitcakes:

The oldest found recipe of fruitcakes was found in Ancient Rome where it states that they were made of pomegranate seeds, pine nuts, and raisins mixed in with barley mash. Sounds just DELICIOUS, right? No. I don't think so.

Soon enough, in the Middle Ages, honey, spice, and preserved fruits were added into the recipe making for a tasty recipe, and... a NAME! And as you probably guessed, they put together fruit and cake to make fruitcake, and there it became fruitcake for the fact that it was a cake, and it had fruit in it.

Fruitcakes soon came around to Europe, the recipe changed and changed as it went from country to country. Milk and butter started to get used in the recipes.
Once the 1600's came around sugar from the American Colonies along with the discovery that a lot of sugar could persevere fruits made it possible so that they could make candied fruits! Making fruitcake more popular. (I bet you it got more popular 'cause they thought it tasted better. xD)

Finally, in the 18th century in Europe they added in nuts to the recipe making it the fruitcake it is today.

Long story short, fruitcake isn't what it used to be.

So, do you like fruitcake. Do you not like fruitcake? If you don't, what's your favorite kind of cake? Have you never tried fruitcake before? Enjoy the DCT, chat away, oh, and for all you fruitcake fans out there, December 27th is National Fruitcake Day.

To tell you the truth, I've never had it either. But, it has fruit in the title, so it has to be gross.
