Chip and Cherry Fruitcake

This is a "fruit cake" your family will love! It's an excellent fruit cake for people who don't like fruit cakes. I think most people object to the citron in fruitcakes, and it's not my favorite thing either. Use both red and green candied cherries if making this for the Christmas holiday.

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour

  • 2 cups pecans or walnuts, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 1 cup halved candied cherries
