Love good homemade fruitcake with coffee, love cheap citron-y storebought fruitcake with cheap artificially colored eggnog.

People who always say they HATE fruitcake, but who always seem to receive fruitcake: take the hint.

I didn't realize people actually ate those things. I thought they were made years ago as a form of an ancient curse and have just been regifted ever since just circulating around the planet.

Like drinking cheap wine, eating cheap fruitcake is usually not a good experience. A family member has sent me one of the best cakes available, I eagerly wait for the postman to deliver it two weeks before Christmas each year. This cake comes from Collins Street Bakery, some where in Texas, so good. It is 60% pecans and the cake is just sweet enough. I wrap up a piece and put it in my jersey pocket for a snack during a bike ride, or put it in the pack when cross country skiing.

I think you're thinking of English Christmas pudding. Like Detroit, there's a good reason for trying to burn them down every year.

I have not previously seen the Alton Brown recipe, and now I am pondering trying it. I love fruitcake in pretty much all forms. I figure that like sex, even when it is bad, it is still good.

Doesn't say what size and style of pan to use.
