    Title: Favorite Holiday Fruitcake
    Categories: Cakes, Nuts, Fruits, Citrus, Dairy
    Yield: 1 Loaf

    1 ts Baking soda
    1 c Dairy sour cream
    1 c Chopped dates
    2 c Raisins
    1/2 c Chopped glazed cherries
    1/2 c Chopped dried sweetened
    - cranberries
    1 c Chopped walnuts
    2 c All-purpose flour; divided
    - in 1/4 c & 1 3/4 c
    1/2 c Butter
    1 c Granulated sugar
    1 lg Egg; room temperature
    Grated rind of one orange
    1 ts Salt
    2 oz Brandy; opt

    Preheat oven to 325ºF/163ºC.

    Line a 9" X 5" loaf pan with greased parchment paper or
    brown baking paper, cut to fit the pan.

    Place one piece to run the length of the pan and stand up
    above the rim about an inch. Place the other piece or
    pieces to cover the other sides.

    (When the cake comes out of the oven, you can easily
    remove it by holding the sides of the paper and lifting
    the cake out of the pan.)

    In a small bowl, mix together the baking soda and sour
    cream; set aside.

    Combine the dates, raisins, cherries, and nuts with 1/4
    cup of the flour and toss to coat the fruit and nuts. Set

    Beat together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Mix in
    the egg, then the orange rind, then the sour cream/baking
    soda mix. Add the flour and the salt and mix together.
    Combine fruit/nut mixture with creamed ingredients and mix
    well to distribute the fruit and nuts evenly.

    Pour batter into a prepared 5" X 9" loaf pan and bake at
    325ºF/163ºC for one and a half to two hours or until a
    wooden skewer inserted into the center comes out clean.
    Place a pan of water in the oven when the cake goes in.
    Water may need to be replenished during baking.

    Wrap tightly with aluminum foil and plastic wrap to store.
    If you want, you can sprinkle on a few ounces of brandy or
    bourbon, especially if you would like to store the fruit
    cake for a while.
