    My husband loves fruitcake but I didn't know that there's a fruitcake mix. What brand is it? Or is it a container of candied fruit?

    Is it 3/4 pound mixed candied fruit?

    you and your hubby will like it. I used banana nut quick bread mixes but mom used nut bread and date bread mixes.

    I can't wait to make some myself. Maybe thanksgiving day mom and I can make some after the big meal is over!

    I bought two boxes of banana nut bread mix because that is all that they had at our Walmart. But I didn't have the recipe with me and I forgot the pecans.
