We all hate fruitcake, but we all like its ingredients: fruit, seasonal spice, sugar, rum, brandy, and butter. Come on humans, how is this weird contradiction even possible?
My hypothesis? Fruitcake is in the wrong form. It shouldn’t be a cake, it should be a cocktail.
For my version of this despised dessert (restyled as a hot buttered rum riff) check out the link in my bio!
Pineapple @plantation.rum, @pierreferrandcognac, candied fruit and mulling spice syrup, butter, black walnut bitters, hot water.
