9 Minute Can’t Fail Holiday Fruitcake (1969)

9 Minute Can’t Fail Holiday Fruitcake recipe

Once upon a time, fruitcake took days to prepare. Weeks even. But not any more. Not when you make it this speedy way. With Eagle Brand’s blend of fresh whole milk and pure cane sugar. With None Such’s sweet and tangy mince meat. And with nutcracker fresh Diamond Walnuts, available shelled or in the shell. In 9-1/2 minutes, you’ve mixed it today’s way. And it’s every crumb as good as old-fashioned.
