The century-old secret family recipe came to St. Louis. Mo. in 1917 - a secret family blend of spices and costly ingredients that make this fruitcake famous. Now it's yours from Butterfield Farms to delight your family and friends on any occasion.
Loaded with goodness: Plump French cherries, Sun-ripened raisins, Selected California walnuts and almonds, and Hawaiian pineapple (afternoon picked at the height of sweetness). All swirled in a butter-rich batter, seasoned with secret spices ... steamed baked to insure lasting moistness ... soaked with Bourbon, Rum, and aged-in-wood Brandy ... then set aside to "mellow" in cool darkness. This is 'Not your mother's fruitcake' (Note no citron or filler ever used.) Our fruitcake is then 'steamed' baked to insure lasting moistness, releasing the essence of the premium Bourbon, Rum,, and aged in-wood brandy. We allow our cake an appropriate "Mellowing" time resulting in a true gourmet's delight.
The result is a gourmet's delight. A fruitcake that has been acclaimed by food editors, voted #1 by top food critics, selected for sale in the smartest department stores.
