This is my favorite recipe for fruit cake!

This is an old family recipe (stolen from some one else’s family). Fruit cake is either one of those things you “love or hate”  but, this recipe makes it great no matter how you feel about fruit cake. (Picture in you mind Julia Childe reciting this recipe — it will make it that much more fun) HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

  • a cup of water
  • a cup of sugar
  • a cup of brown sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups dried fruit
  • a tsp of baking soda
  • a tsp of salt
  • lemon juice
  • nuts

First, sample the whiskey to check for quality.

Take a large bowl. Check the whiskey again to be sure it is of the highest quality. Pour 1 level cup and drink.  Repeat.

Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add 1 tsp of sugar and beat again.

Make sure the whiskey is still OK.  Cry another cup.

Turn off the beaterer. Break 2 leggs and add the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit.

Mix on the turner. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers, pry it loose with a drewscriver.

Sample the whiskey to check for consistency.

Next sift 2 cups of salt, or something.  Who Cares? Check the Whiskey.

Next,  sift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one tablespoon of sugar or something, whatever you can find.

Grease the oven.  Turn the cake tin to 350 degrees.

Don’t forget to beat off the turner, throw the bowl out the window, check the whiskey again, then go to bed.



Wishing you and your families the best of the Holiday Season – whatever you may be celebrating!

York Central Tech Talk will be off for the holidays but will return after the first of the year.


About yorkcentraltechtalk

I have been in the HVAC industry most of my life. I worked 25 years for contractors on anything from residential to large commercial boilers and power burners. For the past 23+ years I had been employed by York International UPG Division ( a division of Johnson Controls) as a Technical support/Service Manager but I am now retired. One of my goals has always been to "educate" dealers and contractors. The reason for starting this blog was to share some knowledge, thoughts, ideas, etc with anyone who takes the time to read it. The contents of this blog are my own opinions, thoughts, experiences and should not be construed as those of Johnson Controls York UPG in any way. I hope you find this a help. I always welcome comments and suggestions for postings and will do my best to address any thoughts, questions, or topics you may want to hear about. Thanks for taking the time to read my postings!
