- This cake has been "A Family Tradition" for many decades. For family get-togethers & holidays someone always ask…Is *Mexican Fruitcake* on the menu? the ingredients are simple and very easy to make but in my opinion, its just a darn good cake!! The cake barely gets 'iced' & someone's usually right there with a plate. Ready to cut a. 'generous' slice out! Of course this cake does taste good warm & super delicious the next day. Once the cake has 'firmed' & the icing has 'setup'…. I'm starting to "rattle on" so I'll shut up for now..
- **Oh, the reason why its called "Mexican Fruitcake".. the cake portion, has the appearance (in general) of a fruitcake. Pineapples are also grown in Mexico, Hence the name Mexican Fruitcake, but tastes way better…lol.
