Pure holiday fun! “The irony here is that even though I wrote this seasonal song all in good fun, I love fruitcake. I’ve had variations I’m not crazy about, so I understand the jokes, but our family’s recipe, which served as the basis for many of the ingredients listed in the song, is absolutely sensational. Christmas wouldn’t be the same without it.” ~ M Ryan TaylorLyrics: Fruitcake! Fruitcake! Oh, what a glorious fruitcake! Nothing quite says, “Merry Christmas, Good Cheer!,” like a fruitcake. With raisins, green pineapple, candied orange peel, an applesauce batter to make a good seal, the walnuts and hazelnuts, pecans and cherries, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves ‘mid dried berries! Though many may dispute it’s reputation, the fruitcake is a holiday sensation! And, though the thought might fill a few with dread, I proudly declare that the fruitcake is the ultimate queen of quickbread! Fruitcake! Fruitcake! Oh, what a marvelous, glorious, beauteous fruitcake! “Merry Christmas! Good Cheer! Happy New Year!”.
