Assumption Abbey Fruit Cake from Ava, Missouri

Now available with Fruitcake in Baked Goods:
Assumption Abbey Fruit Cake from Ava, Missouri

These fruit cakes are a dark, rich traditional style of fruitcake.

Made by Trappist monks in a small Missouri monastery, this dark and spicy fruitcake is spiked with burgundy wine and rum and studded with English walnuts, pecans, pineapple, cherries, raisins, currants, South American citron, orange and lemon peel.

This fruit cake manages a perfect balance between cake, nuts, fruit and rum - not too much of any one thing.

A 2-pound fruitcake serves 7-8.
