No offense to fruit cake, but I’m pretty sure that it falls under the category of gifts that no one actually wants to receive.
Yet somehow or another, fruit cake is at least rumored to be a pretty standard holiday gift year after year.
If you’re going to a party this season, I suggest showing the host and/or hostess your gratitude by bringing one of the following desserts along with you instead. Present the treats in a mason jar with a ribbon wrapped around it or in a nice tin, and your gift is sure to be appreciated.
By the way, all of these recipes have been lightened up, so they won’t settle in your stomach like a giant brick.
