Meal Type: 
Holiday Dessert
Main ingredient: 
Eggs
Restrictions: 
none
Prep time: 
15 minutes
Total time: 
2 hours
Servings: 
20

Ingredients

3 cups sifted flour

3 cups sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons salt

30 oz pitted dates

1 lb yellow candied pineapple

1 lb green candied pineapple

64 oz maraschino cherries

1 1/2 cups pecan halves

12 eggs

2/3 cup dark rum

Directions

Sift dry ingredients.

In separate bowl, mix dates, pineapple, cherries and pecans.

Part of the trick is not skimp on the fruit. The candied pineapple is more expensive than many alternatives, but it makes all the difference.

Add dry ingredients and toss.

Beat eggs and rum and pour over entire mixture, then toss.

Pour into foiled loaf pans that have been well greased. Bake for 1 hour 45 minutes at 300 degrees or until toothpick comes out clean. Makes 4 loaves.
