White Fruitcake from Robert Lambert
Cognac Soaked Fruitcake Loaded with Candied Fruits
Johnny Carson once said, “The worst gift is a fruitcake. There is only one fruitcake in the entire world, and people keep sending it to each other.” If there could only be one fruitcake in the entire world we would want it to be Robert Lambert’s White Fruitcake (made from his grandmother's original recipe). And, we guarantee that you will want it all to yourself.
These petite loaves are packed full of Robert’s exotic candied fruit and local nuts, wrapped in cheesecloth and soaked in French Cognac. The combination of white raisins, dried pineapple, glacéed cherries, coconut, orange juice, Brazil nuts, almonds, walnuts, pecans, candied ginger, candied Lisbon lemon, blood orange, bergamot, Buddha’s hand citron and Rangpur limes makes this truly the fruitcake among fruitcakes.
Garnished with a white grapefruit star and California bay leaf, this cake makes the ultimate hostess or host gift. Robert suggests serving the fruitcake slightly chilled, cutting into thin slices that resemble stained glass. We like to pair it with a glass of port after a meal.
